I've been doing a lot of walking through Missoula, and there's always neat things a-doing in the liminal spaces of the city.

This is a thread of pictures of those things.

Jesse is very particular about his ice cream. He comes off as easy-going, but it turns out the guy is VERY SPECIFIC about his ice cream preferences.
This has resulted in a running joke around Wheaton Labs, where we perform Jesse's monologue about ice cream preferences, in New York accent:

NO MINT
NO FRUIT
I LIKE CHOCOLATE IN MY ICE CREAM
BUT NOT CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM
BUTTER PECAN YES
WALNUTS NO
IF I WANTED FRUIT, I'D GET A GELATO


This picture was taken at Big Dipper Ice Cream.
I had dinner there last week: two scoops in a waffle cone. 'Twas delicious.

At sundown in late March, these hardy/hearty boarders were just heading out to ride Brennan's Wave.

Brrrr!

These were both from the same night as my previous post, March 30th, a little earlier on my lovely walk that evening.
