Alaska Vacation: Lumberjacks!!

For our excursion in Ketchikan, I picked a lumberjack show!!  (Alan picked something boring with trees and water and animals.  See next post.)

The four lumerjacks competed in various lumberjack-y tasks like sawing and climbing and axing.  We cheered and boo/hissed and laughed (groaned) at their jokes. 

Oh, and log-rolling!!

The winner of each competition took a wood chip out to the audience.  Coop finally raised his hand and ended up with a log circle.  (Which we packed in our dirty laundry suitcase and flew back home to KS.)

Totally worth it!!

Saw this on TV once while I was living there. My family was more into it than I was, but, then again, I was in the 8th grade and nothing really interested me....except for Jennifer Wandler, but that's another story for another time! I would imagine it very cool now that I'm older and think such things are pretty amazing.
