7/24/72 Hi!

For breakfast we had sausage links, potatoes & fruit cocktail. Lunch of egg salad, crackers, dried pears (earlier we had dried banana chips) & some dried candy bar. Our record is consistent rain and/or hail every day - and does it get cold then. We did some rock rappelling - it was fun after getting started. – Your admirer
