Dance of the Decades!

Each year UP rents out the Crystal Ballroom downtown and buses students down for a night of costumers, dancing and fun. I decided to take advantage of my sister's tie-dye and go hippie!
Gotta Love Feathers and Fringe!

Red things.

I'm off to start another week after having it easy. Lots of decisions to make theses days. Poo on money. I worked out five times last week without realizing it. I took three days off to recover but, now it's time to get back in the game. And I suck at calorie counting.

Ice cave

It's a constant 31 degrees.

Ice skating anyone?

What a hole.

Twisted Trees

SWEET TREES! So the lava creates a barrier for the trees so the root system has to twist around the areas of rock-so the tree is twisty too. Yeah, I lost the brochure that actually talked about it but, it's something like that.

The stairs down to the ice cave-an old lava tube has a layer of ice on the bottom and is there year round. I can't wait to go again in the summer when it's about 110 degrees outside and there is STILL a layer of ice on the bottom.
