Let’s go fly a kite

Today my new friend Cathy and her son Noah picked us up and took us just outside of town to fly kites. Until today I had not had the chance to get out this direction and had no idea that in order to get there we had to cross the airport runway. Just as we were approaching the runway so was this cargo plane. Thanks for yielding, Cathy!
At the top of this hill is this peculiar site commonly referred to as “the golf ball”. This is part of the US Air Force White Alice project.
Kite flying was fairly successful. It was pretty windy out and we had cheap kites, but the boys were able to get them up.


From the hill that we were on we could see back down into town, as well as across the tundra and across the Kotzebue Sound to the beautiful mountains.


It really is cool to see another part of God’s amazing creation!

    That’s crazy about the runway! And look how fast the snow is melting! I see bare ground.

    I love it, flying kites in stocking caps! And we always get the cheap kites, I think they fly better a lot of times.

    Kite flying is one of the most underrated pleasures in life….when coupled with your 4 and 2 year old singing the song from Mary Poppins “lets go fly a kite, up to the highest heights, lets go fly a kite and send it soaring”….it becomes nirvana!So glad you enjoyed your day..thanks for sharing!

    Wow. Look at all that…NOTHING!The boys look happy. Cold, but happy. What time did you go kite flying? I guess it doesn’t matter since you are on summer vacation already.

    Kite flying–looks like fun! Cars yielding to planes? Now that’s not something you’re likely to see in the lower 48!
