so erica & i did out annual trip to nelson's ledges in the winter. now i'm back, a little bit wet, but none the worse for the wear. we only sort of slipped on the ice & only sort of fell through it, so i think we can call the trip a success. we even went into the cave behind the partially frozen water fall, despite fears that the column of ice might collapse on us. it didn't, & the water running through the center of the thing sounded like tinkerbelle. then we played tube-a-ruba, a game where you get a marble through these tubes that you wear, in the parking lot. then i drove all the way home. from nelson's ledges. which is far away.
