Right now I am in Peru on my birthday trip, hiking over 4550 meter (14,927 feet) Yanama Pass. It’s the highest point on the trip and I think it is safe to say that I am sucking wind–hard. That’s almost 15,000 feet! I went ahead and posted this ahead of time so you wouldn’t miss me.
When I plan a field trip I tend to think further afield than Bozeman, but there are plenty of fun things to do right over the hill.
We started off our grand adventure with a stop at the Emerson Center for Arts and Culture. A friend had alerted us to an Einstein exhibit. It was very artsy, and I didn’t really get it, but the lights were pretty. As Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge,” so we went with that philosophy.
I later read that it was supposed to be like being in a star field and that the disc on the floor represented a black hole. The eerie music was the sound of the gravitational pull of the black hole. I probably should have been more on top of it and read the brochure before we got in there. It was still pretty cool.
Next stop was the Children’s Museum of Bozeman. The kids love going here, and normally I can use their wifi to work. Win-win. But the wifi was out, so we stayed for about an hour and then hit the Bozeman Library. The boys read and built with blocks, I worked, and another field trip was enjoyed by all.
