Need something mummified-- Rex, Trixy, Uncle Waldo? This is the place. Shop sets in the yard of a Salt Lake resident.

After this tree had a branch trimmed that was drooping into the road, the Virgin Mary was spotted in the wound. The faithful began to flock. The Blessed Lady was soon hacked out in the dark of night, but the city has allowed a shrine at the sight.

Small city park, Salt Lake.

Mills End Park. Billed as world's smallest park. There, behind the mirror. I shot a picture from across the road and when crossing back over a keeper of one of the world's smallest brains got up in my face as I stood there holding my camera and began ranting and calling me a pervert.

"Why you taking pictures of my wife? You going to post them on the Internet you sick bastard?"

Having been raised to not abuse dumb animals, I steadfastly resisted the urge to swipe my elbow across his nose and leaned in to back him off with a red faced-bugeyed-twitch and scream. He scurried back across the street and continued his rant.

This distastfull urban fona was found in Portland.

When I loaded pictures into the laptop I spotted the one that had caught the wife in the background. I blew it up and understand why he might be a bit touchy. She seems to have a mustache. So to lend validity to his narcissistic rant, here she is, posted on the Internet.

This mountain is part of the huge tailings pile from the world's largest open pit copper mine, in Utah, operating continuously for about 100 years.

The mine has an observation area for watching blasting and rail cars being loaded that look like ants. I made it to the main gate. But this mine doesn't use security guards; it has sentinels. And the sentinels say bring your Chevy and bring your Ford, but leave your motorcycle at home.
