Day 50: Celebrating Independence Day in North Pole, Alaska

Day 50: Thursday, July 4, 2013

What better way to spend the 4th of July than going to a parade?

We parked at the visitor’s center and talked to the woman working there for a while. She moved to North Pole from Georgia three years ago! It is amazing how many people from Georgia we have met. One of the driver’s in the parade saw our Georgia hats and hollered “Go Dawgs!” as he went by.

The parade was small and fun.

It was a great way to celebrate the 4th of July. We grilled hamburgers for dinner and visited with our friends Ted and Ruth Ann after their trip up to Deadhorse and Coldfoot.

If you are paying attention and wonder what happened on Day 49 yesterday, the answer is laundry and getting the work on the truck finished.

Our next stop, Denali!
