Vista House, we hardly knew ye

I have been waiting.

I have been patiently biding my time and hoping for the day when Vista House would be restored to it’s former glory.

And they were close, too. Now (as of a week ago anyway), it would seem to be not so much.

And while I respect the ADA and everything they stand for and what they’re trying to do, I don’t know why it can’t be open at least for now, especially considering they *are* complying and doing what they can to accomodate the ADA’s requests.

I can see both sides of this, but only to a point. Open it for everyone if you have proof that the modifications are happening. At the very least it would mean that people following the Lewis & Clark trail would still get a look at a beautiful building in a beautiful place, and maybe while they’re there pick up a postcard and a mocha so there is still a Vista House for their kids to enjoy.

I’m off to donate some money to them now. I hope if you have been there and enjoyed it you can kick ten bucks* their way as well.

*ten bucks is an arbitrary amount, generally enough to feel good about but not enough to bankrupt you. It’s a nice balance.

    Just FYI, the ADA is a law, not a group. It is not a person or an organization.
