ST. Patricks' Day

Call it what you want! The luck of the Irish or what ever...BUT!
We drove 120 plus miles from Gunnison,CO to Grand Junction, CO on
We'd been out shopping, decided to go to the Olive Garden to eat, but it is packed, with a long waiting list.
So I mentioned that there was an Applebees back near our hotel and so back across town we headed.
No sooner had we been seated and ordered, I told Sue " You are not going to believe this, but Darrell and HoneyLou Bonar are walking in the front door." And then they were seated right across the aisle from us.
Now, they had just driven over 650 miles from Hastings, NE to Grand Junction, Co and had chosen a hotel on the same exchange and had decided upon Applebees to eat also, despite several other possible choices of places to eat.

EVERYBODY SING! " It's a small world after all!
It's a small world after all! It's a small world after all!
It's a small, small world!

We had a great time talking to them and catching up on some Hastings events.

Erica and her walking branch below a frozen waterfall.

Evidence of dynamite left an interesting fracture pattern.

Some locals out on a hike!

A fork in the River. Which way to go, through the cavern or down the canyon.

Like riding a bicycle.... except for all of the white stuff!

The day was great, no lines, just hop back on the lift and keep going!

We finally got in our first skiing of the season. Areas around Crested Butte received as much as four feet of snow over the past week. The skiing was fantastic, the weather perfect. Bright blue skies, mid 20's temp, little to no wind. We've just been spoiled!
