Cool Clear Water!

We took a road trip to gather...water.  Moms Naturalistic Doctor gets his water directly from Mother Nature.  So we headed down the road to see what all the fuss was about.

It was a beautiful drive along the Seward Highway to mile 109.

When we got there other folks had the same idea.  I was told sometimes the line is thirteen people long!  A couple there said they use it for all there canning.

The water was coming right out of the rocky mountain.  It was ice cold and delicious!!!

We filedl up our jugs and headed out to explore the area afterwards.
We stopped at Beluga Point and hiked around a bit.  No Belugas spotted today but it was still fun to run around.

The tide was in and it covered up most of that silty mud.

Mom was enjoying all the wild flowers.

I was looking for sticks.  Gotta have sticks here for mama to throw!

We found our way down to the waters edge.

And I had my first experience with salt water and waves!  I bit those salty waves and played in the mud.  It was really cool!  Mama said I was on my own and she didn't want to get all muddy.  I brought some back for her to check out and deposited it all over her pants.  How could she not love mud?

We stopped again on the drive home when we spotted some waterfalls along the highway.

So when our 14 gallons of water is gone we get to do this all again....drink up!!!!


They should have a snow-cone eating challenge in the Pet Olympics!  I will compete in the Frisbee and stick competitions for sure.  Not sure what other events I will participate in yet, too many good choices!



  1. Ryker you look so tiny on that beach, and the mountains look sooo big. Would like to have a taste of that water, Gran and Granpops water comes from the hill they live on, its tastes very soft,if you know what I mean ;)
    The Olympic's sure is going to be the biggest event in blogland we have some we will be doing, I think there is over 34!! to enter
    Have a good week
    See Yea George xxx

  2. Ryker dude, your killin me. Is the seward highway also called turn again arm? IS that beach the one with the scary mud that catches you and sucks you in so you can't get out, then the tide comes in and you drown, I can't believe you are right there where My Vickie wants to be so bad. More pictures please....we may not get to be there but we are having a great time living thru your adventures......

    1. Yes! That is Turnagain Arm, but not that beach! I actually drove by when the EMS and firemen were trying to extricate a woman tourist from the mud about 30 years ago. She did not make it...it was horrible.
      I will post more photos of Alaska soon. Your photos and wildlife shots are wonderful. You also live in an amazing location.

  3. PS. Jumping, remember the jumping category in the Olympics.

    1. Well, I can jump, but it is usually for a toy of some kind...does that count?

  4. RYKER....
