My sister Amber was in town on a work trip last week and what a time we had. When Amber and I get together the Pennsylvania accent comes on real strong (please read with inflection). We're pretty sure we annoy everyone around us and we definitely giggle as they attempt the PA hick talk. Not everyone has the gift we've been blessed with.
As much fun as Amber has talking like a hick, she definitely doesn't enjoy hick-like past times. Including but not limited to going to National Parks to look at wild life. (I told her that she should just pick Park City and Shawn would be fine with it but she left it up to him and this is where we went.) Yes this is a big shot of my hind end and no Shawn is not struggling to hold me.
We dipped our toes in the Great Salt Lake where they say the largest living organism is the brine shrimp (or sea monkey.) Well, that might be so...in the water...but right at the shore where they bird poop filled sea touches the sandy shore there are gnats a' plenty and as you walk into the water they part like the Red Sea. I promise you this is not an exaggeration. Amber wanted to die and in her opinion she still could because she's convinced she caught something from the less than sanitary water. I put in this picture of Shawn's foot so that maybe if you click on it to enlarge you'll see what Amber was calling "loogies" floating on the top of the water.
On the bright side we saw many buffalo (which Amber practically wanted me to hop on the back of in the manor of 8 Seconds) and a few antelope and maybe even burned off a few calories hiking around.
