My first day in Alaska

The camp is amazing!  the mountains surrounding the camp are beautiful.  My first morning we had pancakes and bacon.  They were chocolate chip which are my favorite!  Afterwards we were assigned the work we would be doing for the week.  I got the job of lumberjacking/trail making. It is such a fun job, we can walk through the woods for work and see the mountains up close.  For lunch we had soup and homemade bread. The bread was probably the best I have ever had!  In the evening we went on a “river bug” that we rode to a large river that we walked along  the edge of. we found a carcass of a moose and another animal that was next to it.  I was able to see many moose walking along through the camp which was really cool.  We went to chapel then afterword we went right to bed because we were all so tired.
