Squirrel Creek - Part II, Valdez

Some of our group left early on the 5th (Thursday) so they could go GeoCaching. The rest of us had a laid-back morning. We headed out for Valdez, making a few stops along the way. Harding Glacier was pretty - it's receded lots since last year. We also stopped at a couple waterfalls for pictures.

Once we hit town, we picked Sara up from the cannery and then hit the showers. Ahhhh!! Clean again - if only for a bit... =) We took Sara shopping with us, did dinner at a mexican joint, a bit more shopping, then had to drop her off. She's now an honorary member of the Bucket O' Fun Club.

Friday was pretty laid back - more GeoCaching for some, hanging out at camp for others. We had dirty rice for dinner and a yummy pineapple dump cake for dessert (made in the crockpots, of course!) More friends joined the group Friday night, and we spent lots of time visiting around the fire.
