We went on a little tour today. A neighbor wanted to pick my brother-in-law’s brain… B. is a geologist, and this country is heaven and hell for geologists! Heaven… because there’s a lifetime of work here, hell… because it’s not easy figuring out what is going on with all our anticlines, monoclines, faults, ridges, creeks, and cliffs! But we took the morning to drive around… and though the day started partly cloudy…
with sun poking through here and there…
by the time we were finishing up… it was gorgeous and warm!
It was interesting and fun and we saw new country and lots of ROCKS!

Traveling with Kenneth was always fun. Rocks, Rocks, rocks on his brain.
I don’t know if you know it or not, but Johnny’s Mom used to saddle up her horse, take a lunch and ride out into the hills for stalagtites, I think she told me they were. Maybe stalagmites (?) Anyhow she shipped them to the Smithsonian Institute (museum?)and got paid for them. So people who visit that place get to see a piece of Wyoming!
Sure do love your blog. Merry Christmas!!
Gorgeous photos. Wish I was on that drive.
Glad you had a fun day! Some of those darker niches look like they might be a bit of shelter or small caves?
You all rode in that one rig???? tee hee Love rocks. Wish I was there too. Your company and learning about your area. What a treat that would be.
Oh the history those rocks hold. Amazing colours.
