Oh, Those Happy Hands! Here they are conducting a command performance at the Phelps Lake shoreline in the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve (LSRP) at Grand Teton National Park. Next stop--Carnegie Hall? (BTW, Turns out it was 8 seconds, not five.) As we Tweeted from this spot, "LSRP is like a cathedral to us. It is the Crown Jewel of the Tetons." Oh, those Happy Hands--watching them was a perfect end to a perfect odyssey amid the pristine beauty of LSRP.
We're home now--back in Idaho Falls. We arrived Wednesday at 3:15 pm. We all three unanimously decided it was time to come home. Josh had reached sensory and informational overload. Susun missed her flowers and garden. John has driven over 1500 miles since June 11--he's flat totally tired out. Josh also wanted to skate board instead of being immersed in Tater Nation stuff.
We had a great trip through Mesa Falls, Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Tetons, Jackson, LSRP and home via Teton and Pine Creek Passes through Swan Valley and along The Snake. It was gorgeous and awesome.
As soon as we arrived home and derigged the truck and unpacked everything, I took Josh to the local skate shop--"The Nayborhood." Many days before Josh arrived, I went there and sweet-talked the owners into agreeing to loan Josh a skate board for free. So, today we went back and took them up on their offer. Josh bought a pair of rad socks to set off his skate shoes and then he took off in Snappy for the city's awesome skate park.
He's been a real trooper these past almost two weeks. Now it's time for him to cut loose and have some quality time by himself.
It's great to be back home. Susun's fondling her flowers and loving her plants. Little Yonni's blogging again. Josh is skate boarding. Life is Good.
Many Cheers, jp
