Time for some games

While many of us have extra home time, it’s a good time to play some games, here are a few game designs with a few of our pictures. Please click on each image to learn more about it. Thank you.

 

The wildlife experience near Denver

A fun place near Denver is the “Wildlife Experience”. It has a lot of beautiful statues both indoors and out.

There is lots of taxidermy animals as well as interactive things for kids.

We spent several hours here just walking around looking at things.

It’s a great place for photography as well.

The location is: 10035 S Peoria St, Parker CO. To contact them the phone number is (303) 315-9444. The cost I believe was $12 for adults and $8 for kids 3-12. So if your in the area, check it out.

Uncle Bucks Fish bowl

So recently visited “Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl” in Colorado Springs CO. It was a fun place and a nice atmosphere. Guess it’s owned by BassPro sporting goods store. Also heard that they have them in various places across the states.

Very fun and friendly for families with kids, or just a nice place to hang out at. Also check out Groupon to possibly find deals or specials.

A bridge to no where

We have lived in Ketchikan Alaska for over ten years. The only way to get here is by a boat or a plane. Ketchikan is on an island. If you want to fly here, our airport, Ketchikan International Airport (KTN) is on another island.

So whether you coming or going to or from a plane, you have to catch a ferry. You can not drive directly to the airport without riding the ferry. Usually its about a 4 minute ride and it leaves both sides twice an hour. This is where there was so much talk about building “the bridge to no where” that was in the news many years back. It never passed so you must ride the ferry and work around its schedule. There are only two airports in the U.S that you can not drive directly to, one in Mass. the other in Alaska, this one.

Once at the airport the view is the best of any airport. There are incredible sunrises during the fall/winter months from it.

During the spring and summer months cruise ships pass right in front of it.

You can watch float plane take off and land in front of it also.

Alaska Airlines is the main air carrier, and Delta brings in a plane during the summer months.

From there you can also see the Ketchikan ship yard as well as Ketchikan.

There are some hiking trails also on the airport island, as well as a lake that you can hike back to if you have the time.

Also both Orcas and humpback whales can be seen in the channel from the airport as well as various birds like bald eagles, Great Blue Herion and others.

So now you know the rest of the story about the bridge to no where.
