DEVIL'S TOWER
Part Two of The Jurassic Journals

Tuesday, July 7
After spending a day at the BHI, consuming some delicious Moose Drool (my new favorite beer), and a good night's sleep, we were ready to start our adventure. We headed out from Hill City along the dusty roads that led into Wyoming. Along the way, we passed Devil's Tower, the famous monument from Close Encounters. Zack and I had a religious experience, blasting John Williams music from our SUV. It was like we had journeyed to the nerd mecca. Pictured above are Greg, Zack, and I, marvelling at the natural wonder of igneous intrusion.


Me with Chuck Waite, a man never short of a funny accent or clever remark.


Greg, Chuck, and Zack soaking in the majesty.

You will let us know if you start obsessively sculpting, or painting, won't you?

And i think you just tagged yourself as Zack in that last picture. Zack may be a stud, but you have good features as well. There's no need to pretend to be someone else.
