Back in the 1920's the city of American Falls was moved to make way for the American Falls reservoir. Today the reservoir is close to 4% capacity so much what is left of the former city is exposed. We all got a thrill out of walking on sidewalks have been covered by water and seeing tree stumps lined up. The mud was gooey and fun for the children to walk on and jump in. At times I felt like I was maybe exploring a crumbling Scottish castle or the Roman forum. But I have never been to either of those places so I could be way off base. But, it was awesome! The Mayos are so fun to be with. Thanks for the great outing.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
