Well, I can't think of a better way to spend Fathers Day than getting ready and packing for spending the long hours of the solstice up here at the resort with the kids and a couple of their friends.
The lake is at it's peak level, snow still hangs from the ledges and snowfields on Colonial, Pyramid, and Jack Mountains and the waterfalls are full.
The kids just took off in the blue boats for some exploration time up at Ruby Creek.
The girls from housekeeping are prepping the cabins for the next guests coming in this afternoon, Tom is assembling a new gas grill so he can burn some steaks and Carol is muttering at the reservations software program that is running slow.
Will shields, long time staff member is sharpening a chain saw, Wendy his wife has the day off and Ethan Abata is out splitting wood for the cabins.
Jeff Jewett, minus his dreadlocks from last year, also has the day off.
Lucas Qualls who is starting his fifth year on staff was blowing glass last night and these photos are from that session.
