I'll see if I can post some pics.

It may seem like more mountains and lakes but I like them.

Thought of you two - now three - again. A friend last weekend in Kalispell visited our campsite and presented us with a flamingo. Which now gives us 5... which gave rise to a story of you - well, Irene - and your flock! We were sure you would be pleased.

Great to see these adventures - and looking forward to meeting Rascal. Hope we see you in Wenatchee in August.

I'm glad to hear you flamingo flock is growing. yes our ears were tingling a bit. We had to leave the flock at home this trip to have room to store extra dog food.

We will miss Wenatchee because we will still be in Alaska. We are planning on coming down through the Canadian Rockies so maybe our paths will cross around Montana. Rascal is always looking for somebody to play with.

Rascal was just shivering with fear and we literally had to push him out side. He smelled something that scared him but we never saw anything.

Leaving Haines we followed the Chilkat River. This is a fish wheel used to monitor the fish by the local scientific community.

We followed the river through the Chilkat Eagle Preserve. Several thousand bald eagles come here late summer till early fall to feed on the salmon.

We came across the little wilderness camp ground that is back off the highway about 1 1/2 miles down a dirt road. It is called Million Dollar Falls.

Thanks Gail, it can be challenging to get internet access that will let you post pictures so I have to jump on the chance when I can. Yes Rascal is really getting big. He is 9 months old tomorrow and we are looking for a scale to see how much he has grown.

Here are a few more pics. This is the first Catholic Church in the area converted from a hut used by the army while building the Alaska Highway. It was converted in 1954 and is the most photographed church in the Yukon. This is in Haines Junction.

The road to Destruction Bay was somewhat uneventful except we had wind. It was blowing up these little dust storms.

It is hard to tell but this is by far the biggest grizzly we have seen.
