Hot Mission

Where do you go when it's 103 degrees (39.45 Celsius, for my friend in Australia)?

Why, you go to the Old Mission State Park in Cataldo, Idaho, to pray for cooler temperatures!

The Cataldo Mission is the oldest standing building in Idaho, built between 1848 and 1853 by the Coeur d'Alene Indian Tribe and Catholic missionaries.

We spent two hours there today, moving slowly around the grounds from one patch of shade to another. The mission itself has 18-inch thick walls, so it never gets hot inside. The ceiling was stained purple with huckleberry juice!

I think I'll apply for a loan to get 18 inch-think walls installed around the perimeter of my house. Maybe the house will stand for 150 years and feel like a cave all year!

Those are some great pictures. So it was 103 in Caltaldo? That is weird. Maybe we can mention Global Warming?
