looking north up Hwy 14, with I-5 underneath. You can see a little of the high ramp above the others; this photo does it no justice. (The interchange looks complex, but functions very well. It's one of the few where you never have to cross lanes of traffic to get where you want to be.)

I once counted all the lanes in use, including several frontage roads -- there are 29 lanes of traffic through the pass. That all got compressed down to TWO lanes after the quake, til it all got repaired a bit over a year later. Needless to say it was an ordeal to go up and down the hill!

I finally got a grizzly to come up and feed. They say that we don't have grizzly's in this area. Bull ****. They are here. I had a sow come up and feed her. I'm talking right up to the cabin. She wasn't real big. Maybe 300 lbs or so. My dog went nuts.
Brilliant thinking,now when she wants a meal she can eat anything around your house, next kids if you have any, then need to shoot her

No kids around here. My windows are 8 ft off the ground. Have a dog that alerts me just fine.

Trouble is,she only come up that once. I think she was heading for the range East of here. Several have done that.

It just surprised me to have a Grizz come up and eat outside. We're not supposed to have Grizz's around here. Nothing East of the Big Horns. But they are here. Just like the wolves. They say there are NONE around here. But ranchers and hunters have taken several pictures.

Sure you can prepare, but still, the stress is incredible! In 2005, we had 4 storms hit this area....
I guess it's just what we are used to.....

I am thinking of visiting Kansas (the Flint Hills) or Nebraska - lots of nature stuff to see. It would be during the summer - July or August, probably. I am not necessarily keen on driving in mountains...but open to ideas and any suggestions. Neighbors, do you have some ideas?
One place that is on my list is Niagra Falls........just never seem to get there. And Alaska......hope to get there eventually. Maine is very pretty.....

They also had black eyed peas, white beans with fat back and mac&cheese and I believe fried green tomato and fried pickle chips. .. (no deep fried thick sliced bacon ?? .. it's got essential nutrients )

" YUUUUUUUUUUMMM YUM "

I love everything on the list .. except okra .. Never got a taste for it..

I don't even have to look at the connector ramp pic.......I know which one it is.......deadly, too..... When I first saw that pic, I thought of the ones taken up north on the Bay Bridge a few years back......(I think it was the BB).....

Oh, not at all like the Bay Bridge -- that one fell en mass over rush-hour traffic, not just the ends of less-supported sections, and as I recall, crap engineering not up to even the standards of its day was to blame.

I'd say for passing right over the fault line and having been jerked in two different directions at once, our big I-5/Hwy14 interchange held up awfully well. And other than the one cop who had that brain cramp and ran off the end an hour later, no one was killed there. (At the time it was still pretty empty during the wee hours.) I'd sure have hated to be in that motor home, tho -- imagine the panic stop he must have made!! As I recall they brought in a big helicopter and airlifted the two vehicles out, none the worse for wear (other than the drivers' nerves and probably their pants

The BB was a different type of construction; the roadbed was literally just sitting on top of loose blocks, and there was nothing to stop it from sliding off them, pancaking whatever lay beneath.

Somewhere in my mom's house is a copy of the book about the 1959 Yellowstone quake (there are pictures of a house that actually sat athwart the fault line!) -- pretty neat little book, has all sorts of maps and before-and-after photos and personal stories. I think this is it:

THE NIGHT THE MOUNTAIN FELL, by Edmund Christopherson (Yellowstone Publications, West Yellowstone, Montana, 1962).
At 11:37PM on the night of Monday August 17, 1959, an earthquake measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale occurred near West Yellowstone, Montana. In less than a minute, the entire side of a mountain collapsed, sending a deadly landslide into the narrow canyon below, blocking the Madison River, and causing it to form what is now Earthquake Lake. The slide resulted in the burial of several campers at a popular campground, crumbled roads up to and in Yellowstone National Park, and damaged the Old Faithful Inn. In the end, 28 people were killed. The details of this disaster are carefully told in The Night the Mountain Fell by a man who began on-site research for this book within hours of the disaster. 88 pps.
Apparently it is still in print.
