Arrival in Jackson Hole
Yesterday was a good day for flying. At Bradley airport I was surprised to see Dennis and Colleen Ryder waiting for the same flight. I also met up with Steve McCann. We had a bumpy flight to Minneapolis, but once at the airport all was well. The Minneapolis Airport is beautiful, and the crowds were minimal. We ate a snack at the Fridays there and then headed to the flight to Jackson Hole.
The Jackson Hole flight was beautiful. We flew over South Dakota and the Badlands and the co-pilot pointed out a large wildfire. The views were amazing as we came into the rockies and saw many peaks with snow.
The Jacksole Hole Airport was small, and we were welcomed by towering peaks all around and an arch of antlers at the airport entrance.
That evening Dennis and Colleen Ryder, Steve McCann, Jim and Cindy Gorski and I ate at a pizza joint in Jackson. The pizza was very good and the prices were reasonable. My folks had scoped the town out for a few days already and they knew where the good cheap eats were.
Last evening I spent a good 2 hours cleaning out my PC from the Zlob and associated Trojan Horse viruses, hence the latness of this post. I also recieved some sad news of the death of a best friend's father. Kat's dad, Chuck was always kind to me and was a very cheerful man. This comes at a particularly bad time for Kat and I wish her strength through this difficult time.
