It’s become a tradition for me to go to Hatcher Pass on or around July 4th. It’s a wonderful place to celebrate the best of what our country is, in its natural beauty. It also is timed well usually for Little Girl and I to cool down if it’s been hot. This year, it has been hot! We had several days of mid-80’s and I’ve been sweltering! Little Girl loves the rushing river at Hatcher Pass. The gurgling water is a curiosity to her-she always looks for where that sound is coming from! She cocks her head side to side and pokes into the water. It’s also nice for her to cool off in the glacier-melt stream.
