This is it for 2010. We're going to print this blog up at 'blog2print' and start 2011. I wish every creature large and small all the best for 2011.

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.

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....

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.
