Rough Terrain: Our First Big Hike!
Saturday morning/afternoon as a lazy one! We slept in until 9:30am, which is sleeping in pretty late for us! We are used to getting up so early that anything after 9am seems like sleeping in late. We got up and made delicious cinnamon rolls and pretty much lounged around all day. But, in the evening we got dressed up and headed over to Hangar on the Wharf for some drinks. It was a lot of fun! The drinks were pricey but we were able to sample some awesome beers.
Sunday morning we made it a point not to sleep in because we wanted to get in a full day of hiking. We were a little disappointed this morning to see that it was only thirty degrees and raining (typical Juneau weather for this time of year). It had also snowed so we were looking at some pretty slippery hiking. But, we bucked up and decided to try it out anyways! It turned out to be an amazing way to spend the day. We got to see and do some pretty incredible stuff.
