Jill and John have also installed eco showers and toilets, which I had never seen before. For the toilets, you push the pedal to half fill the bowl with water and then depress it again when you have finished to empty the bowl. The downside is that they are noisy, being so efficient with water use is the upside.
There is also a track down to the most wonderful arctic greyling fishing spot. Bradley is our fisherman for this trip, he caught several and we decided one was perfect for eating. Brent lit the barbeque the next morning and cooked the fish up to share at breakfast.
Both Bradley and Reagan had fun on the zip line, there was one going across the stream and another coming back. Brent even joined them and had fun too. The dog was named Denali. Reagan has been looking for a stray that might be able to fit in our car to take home, we wondered if Denali might be the one. The name should have been a give away being the biggest mountain in North America (I think). Well Denali the dog is surely the biggest, meaning tallest dog we have seen, he had really really long legs and stood at least waist high. I forget what breed he is. Anyway he wasn't going to fit in the car unless we left both kids behind.
There were about 15 of us in all. The meals were delicious – chicken pot pie with salad and fruit coated in whipped cream for dinner, then cheesecake and sour cherries for desert. For breakfast we had delicious greyling, boiled eggs, yoghurt, home made granola, caribou sausages, a fresh fruit platter and the most delicious rhubarb muffins. We were even given muffins to take with us on our trip, I was very happy.
