Rain greeted us yesterday morning while we were watching the Tour, which was fine by us, but not so fine for photos when we finally went for a drive. Hopefully, the sun and clouds will cooperate today so that I can get better photos.
And afterward, we are going here for lunch. Amy and Jason will remember this place from when we were here three years ago, carrying on the family tradition. Dick’s parents brought their kids here back a looong time ago.
We drove on into Jackson Hole and poked around a bit, then caught a terrific presentation at the visitor’s center. A local author and teacher (Kenneth Thomasma) gave a presentation on Lewis and Clark and their very important guide, Sacajawea, and her valuable role in getting their expedition across country safely. He brought history alive, and has written a book about Sacajawea, using the actual journals of Lewis and Clark. When Thomasma found out that a female was going to be featured on the new one-dollar coin, he lobbied long and hard to make sure Sacajawea was indeed that woman. As a result, he was invited to the White House for the unveiling of the coin!
I, of course, purchased this particular book, which he signed, and with each book, he gave an uncirculated Sacajawea coin. How ‘bout that!
Whatever you are doing today, remember how blessed you are!
