Morning temps have in in the upper 40s with highs in the mid 50s.
In spite of rain we spent a long work day at the Mission Resource Training Center in Tok. Lynne, Babs and I worked on transplanting native flowering plants in front of the building and beneath the sign. We transplanted prickly tundra roses, wild blue flag iris, yellow potential, and native lupine that look like Texas bluebonnets.
Back at camp we fed the kids an outdoor hamburger picnic.
I watched the bear leave the dumpster and head for the fire pit pivalion where he turned over a trash can. Dale ran to the dining hall to take pictures through a window. The bear returned to investigate.
Lynne tried to stay composed as the bear passed so close to the RV steps that she could hear his breathing. The door was open and the only thing that separated her from our visitor was a flimsy screen door! He lumber on into our back yard. I watched through my back window as he meandered into the forest. Sassie, the wimp, just stayed next to me.
I pay a lot of attention to Sassie's body language. She may not bark at 'boogers" but at least she senses or smells critters. I don't hike without her.
Until next time. Continue to pray for us!
