Elizabeth and her nervous husky.
Dori came a long ways towards being comfortable
with travel on a raft.

Judging by the signs we figure this is a wolf den.

Strange,spongy,riverside silt

Camp day

Getting gear from raft.

Day 3 on the raft trip
Chitina River
8:40 PM
Dad and Parker are coming down from a day of hunting sheep. They didn't catch anything, but they might go up again tomorrow. I went swimming today in the pond. Tomorrow,if it is a layover day I will go fishing. Yesterday we got to the camp about noon. It had been pouring rain all day. At our first camp called "Freaky Dog Camp" we sited in dad's gun. The dogs went beserk with fright. That is how the camp got its name.

We didn't go back up the mountain instead we wen to a creek, where I snagged a salmon but it broke the line.
