Back to the quick run down continued from this.
Aside from my detention on Endor we did some other interesting and noteworthy things. Such as........
|Meese! Look at the meese! Holy cow, meese!|
While in the Grand Tetons, Carleen and I ventured into Jackson, Wy. to celebrate my 33rd birthday on the 2nd of October. She provided a delightful surprise, dining at the Snake River Brewpub. The 2nd also happened to be the Iowa-PSU game and I joyfully watched bits and pieces of the beatdown. The late start in Iowa and the time change made the timing perfect. This was a welcome sight.
|Kinnick in all its glory. An exceptional birthday treat. Hawkeyes trounced PSU 24-3.|
|Keeping it real in Idaho. Or eastern Washington. Folks in Nebraska are salivating with envy.|
Ok, before I continue, and no, I'm not apologizing to anyone from Nebraska, I have to mention the 5 mile laser pointer from a previous post. While we were at the Bad Lands we attended a Ranger led astronomical program. Our ranger had a laser pointer with a range of 5 miles. Aside from seeing the 4 moons of Jupiter through a telescope, the green line emitting from Ranger Bob's hand was shockingly rad. He'd point to a star for identification and even with the near-full moon it would streak miles into the sky. I had no idea these things were available, let alone legal.
|It was similar to this. And you really thought I was joking about being trapped on Endor.|
