The West

Carole and I have taken several trips out west. And I took one without her to go backpacking. And when I look at some of the photos I took and recall the places I saw, I still find it hard to believe that I got to go and see those sights and experience those moments.

Iceberg Lake, Glacier NP,

Bison, Black Hills.

I think of Dr. Manhattan saying, "Tell me, would any of this be improved by an oil pipeline?" Of course, assholes with money looking to get a little more already have an answer to that.

That was a good line. And there's nothing more beautiful than a landscape untouched by humans.
