Thanks so much for the wonderful comments, everyone! I went here yesterday and it was SOOOO COLD!!!! We tried to go on one of these, but the wind picked up and they wouldn't take anymore passengers (normally I would NEVER, but it's funny how brave I get with a camera in my hand! LOL!). So, we settled on the next best thing - a helicopter ride! Again, it's something I NEVER thought I would do, but especially after reading one of my assignments from Bryan's 8-week course, and armed with my "camera muscles", I went for it. It was GREAT FUN!!! #1073264
