Alaska Day 61

Saturday July 15, 2006 Dawson City Yukon Territory Log 0 Miles
The Danoja Zho Cultural Centre has a beautiful display of artifacts and descriptions of their way of life. It was interesting to read comments from modern day First Nation people about their recent history.

In the RV park we found the BC family we had briefly met in Whitehorse a few days ago, and had a chance to visit more. Willis lives in the Cayman Islands, his sister Cheryl lives in Coquitlam BC, his son and wife Cynthia (Rico), who is originally from Costa Rico, live in Vancouver. Cheryl, who has traveled extensively most of her life, shared a bit about her experiences, which included trips to Thailand and China, as well as the western hemisphere.

We also met briefly our next-door neighbor in the park, Dan Gore, who is from Mississippi, and had noticed our Texas license plate. He tells us he is not related to the Democrat.

We departed from the culture of the area and had a candlelight dinner at Mama Cita's Ristorante, with a steak pasta dish (pronouncing it pass-tuh instead of pah-sta). Then dipped ice cream for dessert at a shop on Front Street in still broad daylight.

We are saddened today to learn that Wilma's brother-in-law, Louie, (husband of her sister Meryl) had a serious accident at home, where he fell, and is in a coma. We are asking prayer for him and the family as he is being treated at Hermann Hospital in Houston.
Walldog, Willie and Jake
