Then it was off to attempt to get to Jade Lakes. We didn't make it. There was too much snow but we got to within maybe a quarter mile of our goal before the snow became overwhelming. I fell in one drift darned near up to my armpits and had to swim out on my belly on the surface of the snow--no other way to get out--totally soaked when I got out. Anyway, Prudence told us to turn back-you know Prudence, don't you? She's totally cool.
Came into Dubois and toured the Museum. It's the best small town museum we've ever seen. Will talk more about it when we return to Idaho Falls. Time is running out on me here today at the Dubois Public Library.
Susun is touring the downtown shops while I check email and pen something on El Blogosphere. Dubois claims to be home to the Giant Jackalope. Well, it's been a great trip here--we want to come back soon. Will be hitting the road early tomorrow so we can goof off in the Tetons--maybe rent a canoe on Jenny Lake.
Thanks, Wayne, for your awesome comment! Well, gotta post pix and run. TTFN & Cheers, jp
PS--We each got to see a pretty good size rock fall from the Breccia Cliffs. They sound like a gunshot and then there's a huge cloud of dust and you see big boulders rolling down. Amazing. Also, the falls are 150 feet.
