We went to the visitor's center and watched a movie on the construction of the road. Don't ask Mike about the movie. He slept through it!

Today Lee will be looking ahead to the next few stops and getting us a ...
Although the temperature dropped to the freezing point, we slept well and we spent the morning doing some reorganization and refinements.
