Posted: July 04, 2015
Today was the annual Fourth of July Parade held in Victor Idaho.

There were a lot of parade participants as well as spectators. There were marchers, horses, old cars, local activity groups and merchants in the parade. The oldest resident in the valley was also featured and got a great ovation from the spectators.

It seems everyone had a good time especially the kids. They scrambled to pick up candy being thrown by folks on the floats.

highway 64
Posted: December 06, 2009
This is something you don't see every day.

Highway 64 was under construction for over a year. Traffic was re-routed and St. Louis residents had to make big compromises. As a "thank you" to the public, folks were allowed to visit Highway 64 on foot, bike, stroller, skateboard, etc. the Sunday before it was opened to traffic.

Derek trucks
Posted: July 18, 2008
The Derek Trucks Band performed at Grand Targhee tonight. Derek's wife Susan Tedeschi joined the band and took it to another level.

Mary Lacy, a good friend from our college days at Washington University in St. Louis, joined me. Mary has lived in Houston, TX for around 35 years so she  is not accustomed to, shall we say, "cooler temperatures". As this was at night at an elevation of 9,000 feet, we did have some of those cooler temperatures.

At one point, I asked her if she would be alright if I left her and went down near the stage to take some photos. She said yes.

When I returned, she was wrapped up in some blankets that had been loaned to her. She was still quite cold. I suggested she accompany me back to stage front where there was a crowd of humanity generating much heat.

She did so and was quite comfortable. She remarked that she couldn't wait to phone her sons to let them know their mother was "in the mosh pit"!
