Sonos played there 4 or 5 years ago, so I saw the Performing Arts Center then, but it was nice to see the rest of campus.
Here's another bit from the Small World Department: it turns out that Carol's father once lived in the basement room of Nancy Hascall's parents! Nancy is a handbell soloist & teacher in Oregon who I have known for several years. She's also a C-of-I alum.
Anyway, the College has a Natural History Museum which we visited today. They had lots of skeletons & taxidermic exhibits, plus insects under glass & snakes in jars. One of the curators was there & told us about organizing some freshwater snail specimens (from the Snake River? Not sure, but it's the big river in the area) to send to the Smithsonian. Neat!
After lunch in Caldwell, we drove back to Burley to stay the night @ Kevin's parents' house again. They've been so nice & I really appreciate their hospitality!
Tomorrow, we drive to Big Sky, MT. I had hoped to stop at the opal mine/store that Brian & I stopped at when we drove to Saskatchewan for a family reunion back in 2006, but it turns out that that's in Spencer, which is not on our route & would add almost 2 hours onto our trip. *sigh* I'll have to wait for another trip to buy more opals! :-)
