This morning Bus C finished up their time in Washington. In the morning the group toured underground Seattle where they viewed some of the original city. Next the group visited an alpaca farm where they learned about these interesting animals.  The group will finish the day with a visit to Powell’s Bookstore, the largest “new and used” bookstore in the world. There the Wheelniks will be able to browse the shelves for an interesting read (of which there are a great many) and pick up some books for the rest of their bus rides this summer.

Today Bus A spent the day in Salt Lake City. In the morning they toured the Salt Lake Olympic Oval and learned about the winter games that were held in the city. The Wheelniks had a tour of the practice facility and the museum and had a chance to take a chairlift up one of the mountains. Later, Bus A came back to their hotel to play the Newlywed Game! It was a great, relaxing, social activity and the Wheelniks got to know each other even better!

Today Bus B made their way to Albuquerque, NM. On the way to their destination the group stopped at the Cadillac Ranch, a stop on the side of the road with old Cadillac cars jutting up from the ground which people who pass by frequently sign or spray-paint. After adding their names and some of their own designs the group continued on to their destination. When they arrived, the Wheelniks had time to explore the shops and area of Old Town Albuquerque. The group will later go to a local synagogue for Minha, Sihot and dinner. In the evening they will head to the Hinkle Family Fun Center where they will ride go-carts and bumper cars and play mini golf and arcade games.
