The Alaska State Fair

We went to the Alaska State Fair this weekend with some friends. We had a fun time eating fair food (I had a caribou steak sandwich), and seeing the giant vegetables. This was viewed as a tough year for giant cabbages; the winner tipped the scales at a mere 79.1 pounds.

Cabbages weren't the only really large vegetables, there were also pumpkins that weighed 300 and 900 pounds.

We also saw a lumberjack show. During the show they had lumberjacks throw axes, saw through logs, climb trees and participate in a log rolling competition. Here are some videos of the lumberjack show.
