8 MONTHS today! Ang and I arrived in Moab Utah yesterday and will be hanging out for probably a week before heading to Boulder, CO. We've transcribed most of our interviews since CA and should have a slew of new blog articles in the next week or so depending on our power availability. Here's some picture updates:
We had an amazing time visiting Angie's relatives in Idaho, we went on tons of hikes and saw more wildlife in those couple weeks than all the critters I have ever seen in my life combined. Angie's uncle took us for a float down the Snake River and we stopped to climb on this waterfall, Fall Creek Falls.
After our whirlwind visit back in VA (to attend family celebrations weddings, graduations..) we flew back to Idaho in time for a Memorial weekend trip to Yellowstone! I had never been before and I'm going to limit myself to 3 photos but it was AMAZING!
Angie and a young ewe (female bighorn sheep).
At one point there was a heard of buffalo crossing a rather large section of the river and we watched in horror as calf after calf got swept down stream. We thought they might drown because they kept trying again and again but finally the mothers crossed back over. I filmed the episode along with our other animal sightings (including griz/black bears and cubs, wolves, elk, snowshoe rabbits..) but its going to be awhile before I get it online.
And here is our touristy shot of old faithful
One last yellowstone picture, I spotted this unusual bus that we later saw shuttle people around the park. It has a canvas convertible top, neat!
So now we're hanging out at Ken's Lake campground in Moab and its HOT. The lake should help us survive the heat as long as we remember to reapply sunblock... but its days like these that make me think maybe I could get over the noisy generators buzzing all around our camp for a few minutes of AC. Oh well.. we've been 8months without I suppose we can last a few more.
