Yesterday, the 18th, we spent the morning in the house.  After lunch, we went to Walmart, so, nothing much to write about.


This morning, the 19th, I checked the air in the tires, and Marilyn did wash.  In the afternoon, we drove to the Great Platte River Road Archway Monument.DSC02641  The Arch is a museum about trails and roads west, and actually crosses over I-80.DSC02640  The trails passing through were the Oregon, Mormon, and San Francisco trails  US 30 followed the same trail west, and was originally named the Lincoln Highway.  The interstate route I-80 then followed US 30.  The museum exhibits were created by Disney, and you use earphones to listen to different people describe the trials and tribulations of the wagon trails.  The museum and the arch are one and the same.  As you progress through the museum you walk across I-80.IMG_20130519_145404_404  Overall, we enjoyed the museum which cost $10 per senior.  We thought the sound could be improved by telling you to move to the next exhibit. 

Hugs, and Type at You Later.
