Unicorns, Utah, and the KT Boundary.

That's right! We're going to Utah!

My sister-in-law Amanda and her husband Andrew live in Utah with their baby boy Caleb. Rach, Norah and I will fly out there tomorrow (Thursday) to visit. It will be Norah's first plane ride, and I'm excited to see how that goes.

I am looking forward to Utah, I don't know much about the area where Amanda and Andrew live, and I'm wondering if it will look like the picture in my head.

This is the picture in my head. Only, it's not in my head, it's on the internet. The picture in my head is much more fuzzy and has a unicorn.

This is the picture in my head.

Andrew is a geologist, and I've been bugging him for months now to show me the KT boundary when we get there. He says it's not visible in the areas around him, but I don't believe that trash. It's Utah! There's strata after strata of exposed bedrock! There's gotta be some KT nearby. If we find some, I'm going to put it in a bottle, and use it to clone dinosaurs. I'll keep my fingers crossed, I don't care what Andrew says. What does he think he is? Some kind of geologist or something?

Anyway, we're excited to be on a little vacation, and I hope Utah is everything I dream it could be. If it's not, I'll buy underpants.

You are ridiculous!!! We are going to be 4 hours from that arch.

When I read the title, I thought the KT boundary might be the line between our friendship/professional relationship! Enjoy Utah!

I think the boundary is where the discussion turns to underpants.

I would like a picture of a unicorn, please. Or, whenever you're at the arch bottling your KT boundary, try to bottle me a unicorn tear. That has got to come in handy someday!
