One of the most enduring...
One of the most enduring memories you will have from the area is Silver Lake. It was first called Indigo Lake by the early explorers but owing to its high altitude (6,763 ft) it often remains iced over or teeming with growlers until July. I think it was a low-snow year when we visited. August 3, 2003.

...Back in the '70s there was a man who wanted the world to have easy access to information without having to look through books. So he invented the Internet. His name was Al Gore.



I would've looked it up in a dictionary first, wiseguy, but it sounded like a slang or regional term. But I looked it up at dictionary.com, and came up with four possibilities. I'm guessing it's #3:



1. One, such as a dog, that growls.

2. A small iceberg.

3. Informal. A container, such as a pail or pitcher, that is used for carrying beer.

4. Electricity. An electromagnetic device with two poles, used for magnetizing, demagnetizing, and finding short-circuited coils.
