|A solemn moment as the hunters prepare to hear the Official Rules.|
|The huntress stalks her unwary prey....|
|View from the train. I didn't hike there. Not enough snow.|
|Crocuses! Yay! It's SPRING!!! This was on Main Street.|
|Yeah, this was the actual trail.|
|They don't really encourage us |
to explore that structure.
|But look - there are GREEN LEAVES! For realz!|
|The blue-blazed Notch Trail (some parts were a bit steeper and slippery)|
|Semi-random cairns atop a fallen tree; note that the roots pulled up some stones of their own as well.|
|I think there's a turn coming up!!!|
|I liked the lines in this picture|
|(The sign on the post says: "C'EST ICI")|
|The ceiling was pretty cool|
|Hooray! Men in kilts!|
|At first glance it looked like spies, action heroes or super-villains |
launching a campaign to take the building by storm....
|This reminded me of our old home in Belgium, where the upper floor was|
almost entirely windows. We had to place bird silhouettes on the windows.
|A view from the roof at sunset|
|Sunset reflected on buildings. I just love this.|
|Dumplings and salads.|
25th anniversary performance of Symphony #1 “The Lord of the Rings” by Johan de Meij. Performed by Valparaiso University Chamber Concert Band and Windiana Concert Band. Johan de Meij, conductor.The third movement ("Gollum") seemed to last quite a long time and suddenly (after a dark stretch) became very hobbit-like. Sure enough, that was the fifth and final movement, "Hobbits". Oh well.
