Moving to Utah - Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore

Ok I know we moved to Utah several months ago but I just got the pictures organized. Here are some of the National Park pictures for Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. As I mention before, Veronica and I are trying to visit all of the National Parks so this knocks another one off the list. Eventually I will tally up how many we have been to.


Here I am walking Twix and Aikman down to the beach.

Presenting Our New Dog - Jackson



Ok, so we went to buy dog food the other day and they happened to be having what they called a "Super pet adoption". I thought they could fly or something. I was apparently wrong. But anyway by the time I locked the car Veronica was already in the middle of a swarm of puppies.



Well I saw this one puppy that looked so sad in his cage and he was the same puppy they had up for adoption over a month before. Well we ended up taking the dog for a walk and I still felt really bad for him because he was 7 and it was likely he was not going to get adopted. So we decided to take him home. Well afterwards I found out he was in a foster home at the time so I felt less bad than before.




Well now that we have him home. He seems to be slowly adjusting. He is much higher energy than either Twix or Aikman so it is a big adjustment for us all. Twix still is not sure what to do with him. She is the alpha of the family but Jackson is trying to take over so Twix is very unhappy. But hopefully she comes around soon.

This picture was taken at the Museum of Science at Boston, MA. The T-Rex is on the floor below in the dino section but you can get a pretty cool view of it from the upper floor.

Geology Fun Fact - For the Week of Sept 7th

As with my dino pic of the week I started this a while ago on my website and it kind of fell by the wayside. Well I hope to start it up again. This will be my "Geoact" (A.K.A. Geology Fun Fact). Then I will also compile all these on my Geoacts portion of my website.

Dino Pic of the Week - For the week of Sept 7th

I figured since the title of my site is "Dino Jim" I should actually represent some dinos. Well I am starting a Dino Pic of the week segment here on my blog.



This picture was taken outside of the dinosaur ride in the Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World. The dino depicted is the same one from Disney's Dinosaur, the Iguanodon Aladar
