There were a lot of children in the VC today, and several became Junior Biologists, including one nine-year-old who spent at least two hours working in his Junior Biologist book, to get everything right! Both mother and son are very bright – the son attends a charter school in Aspen, CO. Many children searched for the ‘secret doors’ in the Research Reserve exhibit. It was a great day. I went on Rebecca’s walk, where she compared Lake Clark National Park to the refuge VC grounds. It was very windy, cool and damp – I have again placed my scarf and hat in the backpack. I guess I thought summer was here – silly me!
Dinner was grilled chicken with stir-fried veggies and rice. We will have rice pudding later for dessert. After two very active days/nights, we have crashed for the evening and will watch a WWII video of the Aleutian campaign, IF we can stay awake that long.
