Merry Christmas To All!

My brother told me about these lights. My Dad took me to see them several nights ago and they were so great that he promised to take me to see them every night till Christmas...and he has!
There's a sign out front that says to tune your radio to fm99. There are 3 beautiful Christmas songs - two of which I have on this blog and the third I have on a CD - nothing corny. The lights move in tine with the music. I could sit all night and look and listen.
Thanks Dad - you never disappoint.

Death Valley National Park

My Dad took me on the best road trip. I've been interested in Death Valley and Scotty's Castle. I've studied maps, google-searched images and videos. I wrote a list of the places I wanted to visit there and I have 3 apps on my ipad showing tours and google-earth overhead visions.
We flew into Las Vegas and rented a car and headed out to Death Valley. This is the outside of Scotty's Castle. Scotty is buried on the ranch along side his dog, Windy.
My favorite part was exploring the tunnel system under the Castle that was used to cool it. They used solar power and had fenced in the entire 45-mile perimeter of the Castle grounds.
Of course I brought my flashlight and it came in handy checking out these things....
Headed home. Thanks Dad. You are the BEST! Now, for my next adventure....

Saturday Adventure

This is everything I laid out to take with me. Map, flashlight, cd, ipad, treats, and friends.
Antelope Island State Park.
If I was born in the 1800's I might have lived in one of these sheep camps.
Me and Dad had the whole park to ourselves. Us and 600 bison.

Need Help Identifying Object That Was Flying

We can't figure out what this is. This is the close-up and the one below is the original. This is in Almo, Idaho. It showed up in several pictures from several angles. It moved with another one from the direction of the moon. From the moon they looked like white rods. The other one disappeared. You couldn't see them with your eyes - just in the pictures.

More Me

Another picture of my backyard.

November Stuff

At Gussies.
At Solitude ski resort.
The best teacher in the whole world, Mr. Pead and my friend Brandon.

Muddy Maze

My Mom had a hard time moving on past the Cortina pictures - so here we are more than a month later back in the groove.

Happy Halloween!

Through the world I safely go...
My Dad's still growing up - but it's all GOOD.
A Via Feratta in the fog. So awesome.
Thanks Dad!

Cortina - Day 6

Marianna and Anna - I love them, they are so nice to me.
This is the same spot in Canazei that my Dad and Marshall have a picture.
Of course old castles. Anything with tunnels, caves, and new discoveries around the corners.
Entrance to the Pordoi/Italian war memorial.
Marianna can see that Dora is real, obviously.

Cortina - Day 5

When I got up this morning I said, "no church, no hike, yes food." We took a nice road trip to a place my Dad had climbed in 1976, 2004, & 2008.
Who is that orb? Is that you Grandpa Miller?
Rifugio Auronzo and the world famous Tre Cima Di Lavaredo mountain group.
Look! A heart rock from the Dolomites.
See the little dog in the middle?
OK...we all know what this is...and yes, I'm smiling really big.

Cortina - Day 4 1 of 2, Via Feratta attempt

Seriously Dad? Did you ever notice anything a little different about me?
Pay no attention to the angle of the mountains on the left....Mom likes to exaggerate.
It's ALL good.
This is the ride up on the chair lift. Blissfully unaware of what lies ahead.

Cortina - Day 4 2 of 2

Just doing my job here; Observing. My Dad is near the top of Cima Ovest (biggest block on the right) via the guide route. Tiny speck of orange if you have great eyes.
I had thought the luckiest sheep on the planet were in Almo, Idaho....but these sheep may beat them out of top spot. The bells they wore sounded so pretty and I could have watched the 2 sheep dogs do their work all day. Amazing.

Where to next? The sky's the limit.
