rollin’ on back in town

Coming down from a rough ride on the east coast. Maybe the streaming tear feel of this piece was somehow prophetic?

It seems my freerange daze will be getting reigned in soon ~ but hopefully for a good cause ~ or at least an expansive one.

Got a few irons in the fire since my return and we’ll see how they heat up.

For now it’s time to regroup rearrange and reengage with sum experiments in gravity along with my excellent support team.

Stuff never goes back in the boxes as nicely as it came out.

Packing it in here in Idaho ~ for now ~ and heading to CT the land of my birth to spend some time foraging around the homestead in the hopes of being helpful, which as has often been noted, is harder than it sounds.

I can’t say I know what this here stuff is ~ yet ~ but here it is anyways:

There is a ton of stuff getting sorted, re-vived, or dis-carded.

Mo D Tails on the Old Ground: Hitting the ‘Jackpot’

The Great Basin Desert tourism destinationsDriving across the Great Basin is like visiting another planet ~ and yet we still had the cruise control and the AC on so still rather earth-like American style.
Once you enter Idaho everything changes.

welcome to Idaho

Just before that there’s Jackpot Nevada ~ the town that gambling made = right on the Idaho border it gives the ‘Nawthenners’ a chance to confront the vaunted ‘one armed bandit’ ~

jackpot And just before that, just 1 mile south of town heading north on Rt-93 right on the Nevada-Idaho border, there’s a sweet little rest stop just 1 mile south of town  that I’ve hit every time I drive thru the area which has been quite often recently ~

I pulled in at night and got up just in time to catch the moon ‘set’

2013-08-24 05.22.22

It is up against a shear rock wall in a little canyon and is an excellent place to rest up & regroup.

2013-08-24 05.29.04

Heading on towards Idaho Falls along I-15 there are a couple of great stops to consider. First about 30 miles south near Blackfoot right next to the Walmart is Jenson Grove Park ~ a rockin’ little park and playground for the kids that you can see from the Hyway.

blackfoot

If that’s not your style there are lava fields that are great to scramble around on at a rest stop about 15 miles further up the road towards Idaho Falls ~ and there’s a State Park nearby as well.

Then there is the Snake River to explore too. Since on most of my recent trips I’ve been going through this area at night it was a real pleasure to see suma the sites during the day.

Back at Art Camp now for the start of a new 4 weeks session ~ more about it over here

Is it ever really possible? Unless we’re not paying attention ~ but if so, then how can anything be old?

I am crossing the Great Basin for the 3rd time in 4 weeks. Most of it at night so haven’t scene much of this yet . . .

. . . but appearances are deceptive and our own opinions are unreliable.

oldfriend

Still even in these uncertain times it’s nice to see an old friend get a face lift ~ of sorts.

2013-08-21 10.50.04

We always look our best in low lighting – unless you are just looking at the parts ~ then chop away my friends.

2013-08-21 10.46.00
