Road Scholar Mt. Rushmore Program
July 18, 2019/Day 4
Mammoth Hot Springs & Evans Plunge
Active archeological dig at Mammoth Hot Springs—ancient deep watering hole beckoned mammoths (Columbian & Wooly), but they lost their balance, slipped in, then were trapped and drowned due to steep sides. All bones are real, not fabricated, and in the place of their discovery. Tour was followed by a junior paleo excavation.
Evan's Plunge—enjoyed an indoor/outdoor waterpark supplied by underground hot (really just warm) underground springs.
Farewell Banquet—the girls in the Road Scholar program decided they wanted a group photo with Jake.
Lou and Bonnie Janelle (LBJ) are career professionals who are currently pursuing life-long interests in photography and digital imaging techniques, respectively.
