From limo ride to charter bus ride

Gone for the last couple of days with a bunch of engineers on a charter bus road trip to the Tri-Cities in WA (Richland, Hanford, and ??). Visited LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory), Pacific Northwest National Laboratories, and a science history museum about Hanford. It's about 5 hours each way, so pretty long ride on a bus. We had to get security clearance to visit PNNL, although I don't think they divulged any secrets. PNNL had guest houses for visiting scientists so that was where we stayed. They were nicer than I was expecting, except for the pillows, which I happen to be picky about. I just want to go to bed now, so pictures tomorrow.

A friend sent this link called Flower Garden. Just start clicking anywhere on the screen.
