Aug 2, 2012 - August 2 Morning adventures

August 2, 2012 This morning’s adventure started with a visit to Cave of the Mounds. This is cave with lovely formations and colors of spelethems, stalactites and stalagmites.

Mary accompanied Solomon on the flute with piano. By 1:30 pm we were heading south out of Minneapolis: decided to head for Rochester where I worked as a nurse(first job out of college) for 2 years, prior to going to Alaska.
