. . . 95% of my mind being on Ron M.'s condition (much the same today), and because he can't receive visitors anyway, I spent the full day at Afton Station, and I'm glad I did. I was fortunate to have both Marly and Phil with me to help all day. A surprise visit from the wonderful Dale Butel and one of his Australian tour groups was a highlight. There were 29 jolly Aussies today. I had fully intended to take a group photo, but do you know how difficult it is to round up a bunch of enthusiastic and excited Australian travelers? You'll just have to be happy with these few individual photos I shot as some folks were waiting in line to pay for purchases. The third picture is of Dale Butel himself, probably the fourth time he's posed for me over the years. Dale is a loyal visitor and he certainly seems to attract some fine people to his groups!
