I happened to be in Salt Lake City in September 2013 and realized I was only 5 hrs away from Yellowstone National Park, a place on my “bucket list”. So I rented a car (a first), drove alone to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and rented a small room for 2 nights.
On the way there, my phone’s talking GPS took me into Idaho then through some very tiny towns crossing into Wyoming. Along the way, the signal was completely lost. Thank God I had a paper map with me, but I really had no idea where I was, so it was pretty tricky!
(On the way home, I took a more scenic route and used MAP only.)
This is where I had breakfast both mornings in Jackson Hole. Lotus Cafe. I didn’t spend a whole lot of time in Grand Teton National
I didn’t spend a whole lot of time in Grand Teton National Park, but here are some pictures I took:
I spent one entire day in Yellowstone. WOW! Hot water everywhere, boiling white mud, roaming buffalo. Here are some photos I took:
So glad I went!! And here are some pictures from the drive back to Jackson Hole:
His name was Sunny. Bright yellow and such a great singer. He was my only bird at the time, and I loved hearing him sing. I decided he might like to listen to other canaries singing, so I bought him a cd. Canary songs. From “beginner” to “advanced” for 45 minutes. After I played it for him, he never sang again.
I think he lost his confidence.
Lesson learned: give birds, babies, children, prospective customers and business prospects what is developmentally appropriate and nurturing. Don’t overwhelm them. They may just tune out, turn off, have their fledgling confidence eroded and budding interest squashed. You might mean well, but meaning well is not enough. Use your listening skills, and don’t overdue it!
