We really needed a Shabbat and Liard won the toss. We could relax in the hot springs and being early in the season, there would be fewer people in the campground. We met some wonderful people in Dawson Creek (from Anchorage) and they arrived Friday evening at Liard along with two other couples from Ninilchik in the Kenai Peninsula. Everyone also had ties to Colorado so soaking in the springs made for some fun conversation. At the end the called us ‘Alaskans,’ lol. One couple has a boat and fishes in Homer for halibut and expect to visit us at Cooper Creek.
