On Wednesday, after a day of running errands and taking care of some other things, we went on a little hike with Jared's sister Ashlee who needed to take some photos for one of her classes. We had a good time, although it started to get pretty cold with the sun going down. When we got near the top, we realized we didn't have flashlights, so we had to make sure we made it down before dark.
On Thanksgiving morning, we decided to go to the ice caves which are near Jared's parents' house. The ice caves are lava tubes which have lots of ice frozen inside. So, you're mostly walking (or sliding) on ice the whole time. There were frozen ice crystals all over the sealing and sheets of ice on the floors. It looked really cool. Some parts of the caves got very narrow and we had to slide through on our knees or stomach. It was pretty awesome. And, of course, we finished off Thanksgiving with a fabulous meal. We also had family pictures, but that involved some drama which will have to wait for another post. . .
