... that the walk was at 10. I misread something. More anon.) On the way, we stopped at Rainbow Curve, where, I had promised MIN, we would see chipmunks, ground squirrels, and Clark's Nutcrakers galore. (The latter is a large, striking black and white and grey bird who lives only above 10,000 ft.)

... s was to which Ben replied, "Tony Smith or Tony Robbins?" A little amused but frustrated, the guy said, “Man, **** you, I hate you, man,” in a somewhat playful way. Confused and trying to be helpful, Christy said something like, “What, who’s Tony?”
“Man, I hate you guys, I hope you drop your leftovers,” he whined. At this point, some “homeless” guy replied, ...
