Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.---------Confucius WE ARE HEADING TO YELLOWSTONE FOR A WEEK THEN TO GRAND TETONS FOR 4 DAYS -------- THEN HOME TO GET READY FOR THE NEXT TRIP MAUREEN AND BOB July 14, 2005, Thursday. After a full day of rain yesterday, Thursday began with glimmers of sunshine and got our hopes up for the 8 hour Kenai Fjord National Park Cruise. However arriving at the pier, the staff informed us the weather was very unsettled out in the Alaskan Gulf. Did we want to continue with the trip? And, if the weather got worse the boat would be forced to return early. Hey life is a gamble and this is our window of opportunity, so of course, we went.

We had two wonderful weeks camping and exploring Alaska. We spent several days in the Seward area, where the sun always shined and the 24 hours of daylight made it possible to take on 16 mile hikes without fear of getting back before dark. We had no encounters with bears, which made me happy as I didn't know if my dog Ceali would try to take them on and only end up making them mad and leading them to us. We got to see Mt. Denali from the Denali State Park (dogs are not allowed in the national park) and grizzly bear cubs from the bus within the national park. My dad and I had 24 nights of making camp every night and sleeping on the ground, cooking our meals over my camp stove, lots of ... read more
