    Today we saw or first beaver. It was so cool to share this with Alyson. So many of our trips have been us showing her our favorite places. This time we experienced it as a family.
    Otherwise this was a pretty terrible day. We left two days late thanks to the truck being repaired (broken valve spring). We got the truck yesterday, but it was to late to leave. We woke at 4 am, left at 5:20 and then drove for 16 hours for almost 900 miles. We cannot get the fridge to run on gas, but we will carry on. After that day, it was wonderful to stop here to swarms of fireflies and then to see a beaver was crazy.Read more
