June 17~Father's Day~sunny/cloudy.
Sleeping in due to late night. Stan didn't even get up for his coffee until just before 9am and shortly thereafter Bobbie's and Stan's son, Steve, his wife and 8 mo. old son arrived to take them to Father's Day breakfast and to drive to Hatcher Pass for a hike and to try their hand at gold panning. We decided to stay home doing laundry, the blog...and calling friends(Donna! Glad you are doing well...thinking of/praying for you!).
We will be leaving for Talkeetna tomorrow morning, taking a look at our property to see how the road weathered the winter, then heading to Denali to pick up shuttle tickets for our ride into the park on Tuesday. Camping at Denali Grizzly Bear Resort, 6 miles west of the park entrance. Updates to follow later this week.
