Yesterday we welcomed a very special guest to our new home, Jill Wilson. A former JBU student, Jill has served at Rift Valley Academy in Kenya for the last 10 years. She has also "lived" on our refrigerator for that long. She is a special gal. We took her to see Mountain Arts Pottery, where Emily works, gave her a tour of the church (thus, the photo below), and a quick drive through downtown. Our plans today include a hike, maybe the museum, and pizza out tonight! Guess we're still in the habit of taking guests out for pizza, even if this isn't Chicago! As of now, it's cold and rainy so the hike may not be a go! Whatever we decide to do, it's just so good having Jill here!
Update: The hike WAS a go. Back to Hyalite Canyon to Palisades Falls. It was damp and 44 degrees, but it was exhilarating.
We took a picnic lunch, and ate along side the lake. Jim was on bear-watch so we were able to eat in peace.
