|Sheldon's trip began on BART. Ever seen a person bring his own seat on the train?|
|Due to 23 hours of daylight, Sheldon quickly learned to cover his eyes to sleep.|
|There really is a city called NORTH POLE and there really is a Santa there ready for photographs! I love his yawn!|
|Sheldon, cousins and friends arrived 30 mins too late for a tour of the Large Animal (Bison) Research Center.They played on the old rusted tractor instead.|
|A behind the scenes tour of the Sport Fish Hatchery. A hatchery is where fish is raised.The Alaska government is so wealthy, it grows fish to stock the rivers and lakes for sport fishing!|
|Train ride at the Pioneer's Park. They were the only customers on the train on this rainy day.|
|Sheldon watching a plane land in water from a river boat cruise. The average age of patron was 70.|
|Canoeing at Chena Lakes.|
|While Li and Cecil took a side trip, Sheldon camped for 2 nights |
with his cousins in a big tent, in Aunt Heidi's playroom.
|Sheldon & Co. tried their luck at panning for gold. Panning means put the |
rocks inside the pan and shake the pan for a long time.
|Sheldon holding what he thought was a gold nugget in his chubby hand. It was not.|
