Bear hugs at Holden Village

We made our annual pilgrimage to Holden Village over Labor Day weekend. This year’s expedition included Steph, Kendall, Stella, Frances, Sandy, Elsie, and myself. The weather was perfect, if a bit on the cool side. We took several kid-friendly hikes, saw some bears, ate our share of good Holden bread, and met Senator Maria Cantwell, who was also staying at the village. All in all, a very fun weekend.

We really missed going last year. The village was closed due to forest fires in the vicinity. This was Elsie’s first trip, and she clearly loved being there. It was very fun for her to have Frances and Stella to play with. I managed to get a short video clip of the 3 girls hamming it up, so I’ll make a valid attempt to post that in the coming days. In the meantime, I am putting an album of photos on my photo gallery page. Be sure to check it out.
