Recently our family went to the Fairview Museum in Fairview City. What a great day it was. The kids were especially interested in how the old telephones worked. It took us a couple of hours to see everything in both buildings but it was a lot of fun. The replica of the Columbian Mammoth was also something the kids really liked. I enjoyed the old photos of pioneer families. We plan to go back again with another group of grandkids.

Ice Fishing Locations up Fairview Canyon: Huntington Reservoir, Electric Lake, Cleveland Reservoir, and Scofield Reservoir.
Last night I went climbing with a youth group on an indoor climbing wall. What a disappointment. It’s like drinking powdered milk instead of the real thing. I think back to last November when it was still warm enough to climb up Maple Canyon. Thanks to many dedicated rock climbers there are more bolted climbing routes than I can count in Maple Canyon.
A good place to get warmed up in Maple Canyon is called “The School Room”. It is right next to the Forest Service Campground. At the School Room there are various bolted routes from 5.4 to 5.10b in difficulty. It’s a good place for kids to climb because the conglomerate rock formations provide great hand and foot holds. Last fall we even persuaded my 65 year old dad to climb here for the first time. (I wonder if that is why he had back surgery this week?)
Anyway, Spring is coming and the snow will soon be gone in Maple Canyon. Until then I will have to be happy with powdered milk!
I was out in my garage the other day and there was my Honda ATV sitting idle. They only action it has seen in months is associated with the big snowplow hooked to the front. I think I have a bad case of “I hate Winter” syndrome. I need to feel the warm breeze and smell the fragrant mountain air as I ride through the aspen and pines along the Arapeen ATV Trail. They say the Arapeen has over 350 miles of trail.
Until the snow’s gone… I’ll just have to wait!
In its 4th winter, the US Snowkite Masters has grown to become a world wide series of events, hosting national titles in several different countries.
