Devil’s Tower! Way cool Greg. Glad to see you on dry ground and getting some quality R&R buddy. Know you’ve been away on the platforms a lot.

We just got back from the high country. One of my new favorite places, Ouray CO. Gorgeous. The original (and to me, best) True Grit was shoot in and around Ouray and Ridgeway. Rented a BA$$ Rubicon and drove the bride up what can only be called a marginal goat road to the base of Blue Lake Pass. 2 foot boulders and holes. Mrs Boots wanted to kill me but decided to postpone it because it was beautiful. She’s a gamer. Then hiked it up to the pass. You guys were almost short a pair of Boots, the trail was steeeep and slick but but the ol ticker hung on and I made it. 13,000. Not bad for a fat old man.

I hear ya Boots, this Great Nation is beautiful. Here is a quick one from Teddy Roosevelt National Park in the Badlands of North Dakota. An old CCC structure with the Little Missouri River in the background. I will post more on this later.

This mornings views with my coffee. Today we will drop down out of Wyoming and into the Black Hills of South Dakota. Next 4 days Custer SD will be home base.

Thank you Kevin, we have covered a lot of ground already. With 16 more days to go. Thank goodness I work in the oilfield. The fuel bill brings me joy.

So with all the theories out there about the Devil's Tower. Is it a rock formation or an ancient tree Stump cut down by Paul Bunyan? :P :D :lol:
