    I see the people on horse back near the had to surrender to political correctness and have helmets. So far the liberals haven’t figured out a way to install seat belts on horses. They will solve that “problem” by banning horse back riding at some future date.

    I recall 1968 fondly.

    My father used to work my uncle’s country store on Sunday afternoons and I got to go with him and I had freedom to explore. I caught frogs and snakes and turtles and developed my slingshot skills. I was a little boy without a care in the world. When I was done exploring, I would frequency get a Frostie Rootbeer and a bag of M&Ms. Sometimes I would dump the M&Ms into the Frostie and make a mess.

    Amazingly I also went to that rugged camp, for five summers! When I heard that it was in CO and there was a gathering for services on granite rocks on Sunday I knew. (BTW, it was in the evening not morning and called “Sunday Vespers” which means in the evening). It is also in Florissant, not South Park. I too knew Trip Friendly but began in 1972. It is sad to hear that they shut down the riflery range for political reasons. I spent a lot of time there and did NRA training as well.

    The Woodstock concert and Apollo 11 were in ’69, not ’68 (though the Hong Kong Flu spanned ’68 and ’69)!

    I know the Vedauwoo Climbing Area and had a fateful hike amid those beautifully hued cliffs were where the young Arapahos went on their Vision Quests. I got caught in a sudden and dangerous blizzard.

    Tony- I did not see your email address on your site (perhaps to protect you from deranged ideologues?). Please drop me a line when you get the chance.

    68 was also the upstart of the horrible ideas we suffer under today.. but we will regain hope in civilisation again.

    Love the wild Iris. Question did you check for ticks on your dogs and self after your walk or does Wyoming not have a problem with them. As a native Minnesotan this time of the year in Minnestupid they are terrible!

    Thanks Tony! Hard to go wrong with Mark Knopfler on guitar! Would you please consider doing something with Barber’s “Adagio for Strings?” Maybe a requiem for life on Earth as the Evil CO2 wipes out one species after another and the Earth turns a deeper shade of green. Thanks for the paintbrush, iris and larkspur in particular!
