Mother Mule Deer
Fawn, complete with dots.
After we were all packed up, and fresh ice was packed into the cooler, we met the rest of the group and made one last tourist stop. We went to the Canyon Visitors Center where they have a neat museum you can walk through for free. I learned a lot about the area and found it a really neat place to stop. There is a computer that shows the seismic readings for the area, and it showed that not too far from us there were tremors just that morning. It was pretty neat to learn about all the activities that were going on below the ground in the park and I took a lot of pictures of signs so that I would have the information for scrapbooking my pictures later.
The blue squiggles show that there were tremors.
The kids enjoyed the museum.Wallace, Idaho. We ate dinner at Pizza Factory in Wallace, and it felt like home. We have the same chain in Blaine and have eaten there a few times. While eating there, we noticed they have "John 3:16" written on the bottom lip of their cups. Pretty neat! After dinner, we ordered a fresh local huckleberry milkshake at a cute little icecream shop and walked around Wallace until it got dark. Wallace is a great town and is a place I would like to go back to. They are in a great setting, with a popular downhill bike path, atv/snowmobile trails, hiking, skiing etc. It is a mining town with lots of museums and mine tours. When we were there, their ATV Rodeo was just wrapping up. There were ATV's all over the place and they were allowed to ride on the roads. It was weird to share the road with 4-wheelers! It was a nice, restful, quiet night and we woke up the next morning and went to Spokane for meeting.
