Happy Easter!

This Week’s Photo – The Great St. John’s Cathedral This church is quite the gem, just look at the architecture! It is actually 100 years old as of this year. When I was here, I pretended that I was in one of those famous churches Italy. I walked in here, breathed deeply, listen to the […]

Oxbow’s Bend

This Week’s Image – Oxbow’s Bend What’s in the name? Oxbow Bend is a “bend” or looping meander of the Snake River which has been cut off from the main channel. It resembles the oxbow used by the western pioneers. Or at least that’s what I’m told! This was one of my favorite spots in […]

Rockies Opening Night

This Week’s Photo – Rockies Opening Night Spring is here! I might not exactly have an affinity for baseball – or at least the regular season for that matter. Why play a 162 game regular season anyway – that is an absurd amount of games. I mean, does one game in July mean anything? No. […]
