Happiness Is Being In The Snake River Canyon. Sadness Is Having To Leave It.

It was real easy to get down into the canyon — like, 40 mile per hour easy — and it was easy to ride in the canyon. Maybe that’s why I’m so happy. But possibly the happiest part was the 10 mile, 2,000 foot climb out of the canyon on a road that I can … Continue reading "Happiness Is Being In The Snake River Canyon.

Sure, MY state’s biggest university has a world renowned agriculture program, but I really think it would have been sufficient to simply call it the “Farming Department” — just as my alma mater had simple names like “Political Science Department” and “History Department.” Instead of simplicity, however, the University of Minnesota seems to have gotten … Continue reading "More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About the University of Minnesota’s “College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences”"
