Monday, June 18: Slept in a bit, then a nice continental breakfast at the lodge dining room. There’s a huge grizzly mounted there—impressive! Spent the morning catching up on the blog and washing a load of clothes while Ron checked out the visitor’s center, mailed some cards and washed the car. Lots of dust from the top of the World Highway on our little Passat! Walked around town for a couple hours. Tok is mostly an on-the-way spot than a destination. They’ve had a lot of rain too, and the wildflowers are profuse. Alaska’s state flower is the forget-me-not, and they’re even growing on a little sod-roofed cabin on the grounds. Got back just as the rain started. Ron went out for Thai food—what a treat! Hard to cook burgers in a downpour! A little cards, a reading and I’m zonked!
