Reminds me of old times… Bus rides to the “site” in the snow.

I saw an article about a bus accident near ARCO, Idaho. It reminded me of my time (six months as a student) at S1W (west of Idaho Falls) at the INL site.

It still looks cold in the winter. (I bet the bus drivers are looking forward to global warming!)

I remember getting a foot a snow several days in a row and never having a snow cancellation. The average temperature was BELOW zero in January.

I also remember great skiing. (And difficult driving getting there on black ice.)

I climbed the Great Southern Butte in the early spring. It was still snow capped and we used show shoes to climb up and then slid down.

I really enjoyed my time in Idaho … But I’m glad I don’t face that weather every day.
