Default Near Salt Lake City Utah

There are letters on the mountain slopes by Salt Lake City UT. I am wondering what's the meaning?

The Y is for Brigham Young University in Provo Utah. The C I am not sure of but probably is for a local high school. There is also a B in Bountiful, and V in Centerville Utah.

Default Lost Lake Montana

So there we were, cruising across the plains of Montana just south of the Missouri Breaks, admiring the jaw dropping beauty of a landscape spattered with both rain and sun, when we came upon this:



My jaw dropped even further. I know just enough geology to know a waterfall when I see it, and this is a big one......250 feet tall and a half mile wide. The obvious problem....where is the river? The Missouri River is more than 20 miles away. It turns out that this is yet another of the glacial artifacts that fill our northern landscape, as the Missouri was once dammed by ice and cut through these plains, carving these magnificent but dry falls.

Default Giant V of Super Science



This pic is the hub of the facility. It's located 25SM north of KREG, my
home port, in Gonzales, LA. The two lines at 90 degrees from buildings
are actually earth levees with large hollow tubes running
down the top. The length of each leg is 2.5sm, yes miles.



This pic shows one of the legs with the facility in the
foreground.
The facility is LIGO, most people have never heard of it or it's sister
site in Hanford Washington. They work together doing research.
LIGO is Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory

Super dark science. The tubes are hollow and under a vacuum and the
lazers travel down the tubes and detect gravity waves.

If you want more info here's the link to the one here:

http://ligo.caltech.edu


[ed. The LIGO gravity wave sound is my alarm on my phone!!!!! I've wanted to fly the RV over there and tour the facility for some time. Thank you!!! v/r,dr]
