I took a quick trip to town this morning. I have to time things just right because the Big Slide is currently being worked on (another bandaid) and it's only open before 9:00 AM, between noon and 1:00, and after 4:00 PM, five days a week. I had an appointment at 10:20 so was able to squeeze a quick visit in with Dally and a quick run to the grocery store before the slide closed after lunch.
On the way home I stopped after going through the Big Slide. I wanted pics of the crew working but it was pretty unsafe to park anywhere so I drove through and parked on the other side. I couldn't see any of the crew and ended up just snapping some pics of the river. This is looking towards Lillooet, on the right side you can see the road I just travelled to get here.
On the way in there was a few sheep at the bottom of 9 Mile Hill. When I first pulled up they were in the middle of the road licking the salt, there was no one behind me so I was able to hang around for 10 minutes or so snapping pics. As I inched closer to them they took off up the hill.
This one looks like it must be about a year old, a real cutey.
This one is a bit older and it's missing one of it's horns.
I think he was getting bored with me and started nodding off.
When you turn off Highway 12 (the road I live on) the first thing you see when heading into town is the mountains. The building in the picture is the Forestry Office, although I think it's closed up due to government cutbacks but I'm not sure.
Dallas had totally forgot that I was coming to town and hadn't had a shower yet so I went up to her place instead of meeting at a restaurant.
No visit to town would be complete if I didn't see my precious granddaughter Lexi. Dallas took her to the doc regarding her birthmark (although I do not remember this mark when she was born!) we're hoping it doesn't get any bigger or she will have to have it removed when she's older. It's cosmetic so the doctor said Dallas would have to pay for the removal, I think that's crazy, our medical services plan should pay for something like that!!
Oh one last photo, I almost forgot. Here's Dal's cat Shady. She is the most vicious cat I've ever run into... well she's good with Dal but man alive this cat does not like strangers, or dogs, or bears,... or... anyone except Dal. :) Okay I admit I'm not a cat person but doesn't this thing look mean?
Look at the whiskers! Maybe the longer the whiskers the meaner the cat (our cat Billy has short whiskers and is pretty friendly).
