Yes, Boots is still making noise when he comes home at night! But there is more intrigue than Boots to discuss.... But I'll save that for another day.
For now, meet Ranger Julia. She's the lead interp ranger for the east side of the park, and is my coach through some of the training classes I'll be going through in coming months. And for those of you who might remember my tiny little trip to Alaska a couple of years ago, Julia is married to Ranger Tom who I met in Coldfoot. The same Ranger Tom at Gates of the Arctic National Park who told bear stories. I only realized they were married a couple of weeks ago. Talk about small world. We had dinner together one night. Fun. :)
