20Sept2013_1b_Robins-BDay-Silver-City_On-The-Way-GoodAh yes! As it should be, the older one gets, the longer the celebration of birthdays! We took Wayne and Nancy Crissman, hi school friends of ours who are now living in Florida and came to help Robin celebrate, and Brian and Carlynne – Robin’s brother and sister – to Silver City, a historical mining town high in the Owyhee Mountains south of Boise. A beautiful day for a wonderful trip. Thank you Jerri and Roger Nelson, owners of the Idaho Hotel in Silver City, for the lunch and for letting us look at the Drug Store. Here are some more photos of the day. You can Left-Click any of these pictures to see them enlarged. Happy Trails!
