In honor of Father’s Day, here’s my Dad! He lives in California now, but has always felt a close connection with Minnesota.  He was born in Iowa, grew up in Fargo, North Dakota, went to college at Concordia in Moorhead, Minnesota and did his Residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota before taking the family West to California. This was from a trip we took to see Whiteriver, Arizona where my parents lived when I was born because my father a doctor at the Indian Health Service hospital there.  The hospital was much improved from when my father was their, but it was very sad to see that, economically, Whiteriver hasn’t seen much improvement since then.  That’s Merrick Butte in Monument Valley in the background.
