Day4: Minute Man Missile Site...and HOT weather!

Fawna Harris--Today was OK. We went to Minute Man Missile Site, then we went to look for sheep, which we saw several. We also went climbing. It was hot earlier, but eventually cooled down a little.

Emily Fite--- The MMMS was way cool! It was really neat to see how it worked and everything. The weather was so hot today though!!! I thought i was going to have a heat stroke or something haha so we went to the pool. Overall today was fantastic!!!

M Packard -- The MMMS waspretty cool. We got to go underground to the controllers capsule. and to the actual missile silo. Hearing about the circumstances from 1963 to 1993 when the 150 silos were open made us really contemplate the current situation with North Korea.
We drove tothe "Pinnacle Overlook" we sat and soaked in the beauty of the landscape and I enjoyed watching 9 baby big horn sheep play together...chasing each other and hopping around.

Aside from the heat and rain was pretty cool. The missile site was really educational and hit home with memories of the Cold War Era. The kids made a great dinner of spaghetti and I cooked a cobbler to finish the night out......Tomorrow we hike.
