Day 211: Rose Pose

Powell, Wyoming is a town of about 5,000 people close to Yellowstone National Park. Laetitia and her group drove through the park, passing Yellowstone Lake and taking the loop road over Craig Pass and past Old Faithful. They made several stops at other geysers and hot springs and visited the Museum of the Park Ranger before taking the northern part of the loop to Lake Village and then heading out through the east park entrance toward Powell. Powell was named for John Wesley Powell, a soldier, geologist, and explorer.

On the walkabout in Powell with her group, Laetitia saw some teenage boys snickering and poking each other. She looked in the direction they were looking and saw what they were snickering at. The incident provided the limerick of the day.

When a buxom old lady from Powell,
Who bent over to work with her trowel
While tending her roses
Got into rude poses
It made all the neighbor boys howl.
