I won! I won!

:-) Wish I could get this to print a larger SMILE! I entered the KFBX website contest for a trip for 2 on the Denali Explorer (train to Denali) and I WON! I couldn't believe it, 'cause I was listening to the radio and the phone rang! If the smoke ever clears, this is going to be AWESOME! Hubby couldn't believe it either!

Smokey and *cough* *cough* warmer this morning. It's the last day of July (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! She's 79 today!), and it looks like we WILL have the hottest, driest July on record in Fairbanks. What's weird -- about 500 miles to the south in Seward, there's flooding, and somehow Bettles is rating rain today, too. Gotta run and get the kids to camp (and the boy is testing for 9th Gup in TaeKwon Do this evening, too). Happy Friday! (and, Thanks, God, for the trip. What a nice surprise on a smokey day!)

Woohoo & Cool Beans! Congrats! The bus tour is awesome, some day I want to take the train. I hear the Denali Princess Lodge is very nice, too. Congratulations!

what awesome luck! totally jealous here, that is one side of the state i've never seen! take tons of pictures! :-)

I'm celebrating the break in the heat! Lovely clouds rolled into Tok today and brought the temps to a managable mid-70's :) The smoke, though, was totally unwanted; you can have that back. When do you leave for your trip?

Speaking from personal experience will enjoy the trip.... Is that from Fairbanks, or Anchorage??? I did find that the scenery from Anchorage to Denali was MUCH more panoramic!
