Walking a Tightrope Way Out West

Uncle Jeff, who worked in a Jackson ski shop for a year,
calls these arches in the town's square "the biggest herd
in the world."
On our arrival in town, we were greeted by a quick
-- a real surprise, since it was about 85 degrees.
Later, we wandered onto a scene of aspiring tightrope
walkers, some of whom took time out to show us
to get started. It was a cool scene, until one
of their guitar-playing group leaned over and started
vomiting. Just a beer vomit would have been all right,
but he kept going, until he had a pile about the size of
an apple pie. We took that as our cue to go. "Okay,
thanks for the tightrope lesson. See ya!"
