Since Bloomington Lake didn't work out, we thought we'd go to the free bird refuge and get some pictures.
I thought this next photo was ironic- an airport sign next to the old pioneer cabin.
Next, we were off to the Paris Tabernacle for a free tour. The building was pretty and I liked how it still had so many of the original charms from when it was built.
|I got to walk behind that organ. Ever done that?|
After our tour of the tabernacle, we went back home to rest a bit, mind you, it's still like 11 in the morning since we woke up before dawn. We were greeted by hummingbirds when we got to our cabin, so Steve got a nice close up of this one-
We rested, then ate some lunch and decided to nix the idea of going golfing, and go rent an off-roading side-by-side. That turned out to be a fine idea. We rented it for 4 hours and drove up several different canyons admiring them all.
When our four hours with the OHV were done, we had to get a raspberry shake, so we asked the workers at the rental shop where we should go, and they both suggested their favorite, Zips. So, it was off to Zips for dinner, a mere 30 second drive down the road.
Evening was upon us, and Steve and I still hadn't had a chance to go out to Bear Lake, so we thought we'd just drive down the path the owners had, but that plan didn't work. We got our front tires stuck good. We had to tell the owners who rounded up some neighbors with a tractor and chains to pull us out.
This place would be a nice gathering spot for a family reunion or church group!
Our hosts had a nice garden between our cabin and their home.
