New Orleans: 23-27 March, 2003

In New Orleans, Greg attended the ACS meeting.
Andrea explored town and surroundings, including the French Quarter, Jackson Square, the Riverfront, walked around Saint Louis Cemetery No. 1 (the oldest cemetery in New Orleans), enjoyed the various street artists, etc.
One day, Andrea took the bus (quite an experience in itself...) out to the Audubon Louisiana Nature Center in the Mississippi Delta. It was all green and wet, with lots of little and not so little creatures in the water....
One night we had really good Creole food at Oliviers (a good tip from the LP).

Salt Lake City: 14-16 March, 2003

We went for a long weekend to Salt Lake City.
While Greg had a business meeting on Friday, Andrea went to explore the town, the Temple Square, Cathedral etc.
On Saturday, we went out onto the Great Salt Lake to Antelope Island and hiked around a bit.
It was super windy, the island was pretty barren, there was a herd of wild (?) bisons we had to pass by rather closely...
On Sunday, we went skiing in Alta. There was little snow left before, but on Sat night a foot or more of fresh powder came down. Very nice, and not crowded at all.
