car: getting new tire installed
- note: had an unrepairable flat-tire this morning; these youngsters from a trucking and tire-repair business could supply a replacement;

ferry: and people at the front of the line ferry: with dozer unable to dock on far shore ferry: docking-ramp has been repaired on our side Platanthera obtusata: plant with pods and flowers Calla lily: plant Calla lily: closeup Northern twayblade=Listera borealis: clump with fresh and old pods Dragonfly: on stone Dragonfly: on boat Common plantain=Plantago major: plant Dragonfly: mating pair Dragonfly: mating pair in the mating-wheel position
- note: although the Dempster officially re-opened this morning, 'twas late afternoon before this ferry became operational; the early-birds at the front of the line, who'd been there all day, were the same Alaskan antique-car folks we'd met in Inuvik; since we'd started later, dawdled, and been delayed by tire-changing, we didn't have to wait as long;

- we passed the time by looking for plants, promptly finding a species of orchid we had yet to see on this trip; I got some dragonfly photos I'm pleased with; so the delay was a good thing;
