We drove from Fairbanks (thanks for lending the car and gear, Anne & Don!) to Chuvena. By amazing total-lack-of-coordinating, both the Robinson clan and the Talus-Heavner clan were running exactly the same amount late, and we pulled into the parking area within one minute of each other!

We had a great hike into the cabin (Harlow and Matt working as camels, seen below).
Then we got to the cabin and all enjoyed saunas, canoeing, catching up, lounging around, etc..
The kids all had a blast (enjoy the Sauna here):
And they especially enjoyed jumping over to the round dock–it not only made the mom’s scared, but even the dad’s were a bit worried–that’s how much fun it was! 🙂
As always, check out the whole gallery.
