“…Don’t want to talk about it”

It’s been a while since I last posted, but Meren was here, and we were too busy being in nature or in a hospital.  He fell ill on the first day here, and ended up in the hospital on day 5 and stayed there for 2 days.  It must have been tonsilitis, they said.  It…

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

I’ve been wanting to go to Canyon ever since I  got here, but I haven’t really had the chance.  I had heard that it is beautiful and has a sort of fatal attraction that draws people to the edge to get a better look.  I wanted to see for myself.  Having just gone to The…
