Gentri Lee: Girdwood Pt. 1

Girdwood Pt. 1

*NOTE*
These pictures in no way do this place justice

Are you read for picture overload?! Haha! Yesterday we went on THE most gorgeous hike I've ever been on. Not only was it insanely gorgeous, but to get across the river you had to get inside a cage and use a pulley system!! SO much fun!

We didn't do the entire trail, that's the joys of having kiddos (who are AWESOME hikers btw!). But we made it to the bridge which had some incredible views of the river.

I'm off camping for a few days, but I've got two more posts from just this one day lined up! It was such a fun and gorgeous day with so many things to see! I hope you enjoy them! I will miss you all!! :)

Oh my gosh, gorgeous! At first I thought it was zip lining, which is something I've always wanted to do! Looks like you're having a blast, Gentri!

Jackie said...

I love all the photos. The scenery is amazing.

Kirsten said...

You are brave! I do not think there is ANY way someone would be able to get me in a rickety cage suspended high in the air over a river...by some ROPE! You must be some type of adrenaline junkie! haha just kidding! The pictures are really beautiful. It almost makes me want to be a nature girl...almost :)

So, so beautiful! When I was younger I used to hate the great outdoors and now that I live in the city, I think it is the most beautiful thing in the world. I'm so glad you had a wonderful day in such a beautiful place!

Nnenna said...

The views look gorgeous! However, I know I would be way too chicken to get up into that cage!
