I can hardly believe summer is over, whew that was fast!
We started the summer with a great visit from Bill's brother Richard,(wife) Tami and daughter Chela with baby Landon. Dad and Grandmom Jackie were here too!

Bill took Rich and family to Arches and Canyonlands.

Next, we had a Johnson family reunion (Grandma Janice's side) in Twin Falls. Ken, Ellen, Katie, Bill and I went up to the "oh so awesome, Ice Caves".

Kendall is a hoot to be around. I love him!

Then I did my pilgrimage to Oregon for a little r&r with sister Sue. The coast was beautiful. You can't see well, but we were watching some gray whales breaching below.

Sue is THE BEST traveling partner.

This is Cape Foulweather - not today!

Then to top the summer off, we (me, Jayleb and Babes) went to check out Green River. This is the temporary Conductive Composites Company facility. Pretty bleak.

Miles of blacktop! IT'S A RUNWAY!!

Then we went into town for some free watermelon. Me and my girl chomped!

I will say Green River is delightfully small town, with delightfully odd folks!

Then out to the Future of CCC. I'm still not sure what to make of this. It has it's own kind of beauty, just not sure if this is where I want dwell.

What do you think?

This is a beach on the east side of the river. Lots of people hangin out.

And this is where people go when they die in Green River. Yes, those are above ground mounds.
