I left home July 1 heading east to ultimately attend a dragonfly meeting in Minnesota. My trip has taken me through Wisconsin three times and to Chicago twice and now I am in Bozeman, Montana.

Sorry to be starting this in the last quarter of the trip, but I wanted to say that I'm visiting the Museum of the Rockies for the first time tomorrow and I'm pretty pumped about it.

I visited Teddy Roosevelt National Parks a couple days ago and photographed some interesting sedimentary deposits and this morning photographed some exposed features in the Hells Creek Formation that include the KT boundary.

My laptop died more than a week ago, so the is being typed on my phone, which I hate. When I get home I can fill in the gaps with exciting tales, but for now brevity.

I'd be pumped for some pics, but wasn't I promised some mammoth pics last year about this time? I don't believe that happened.

ROFL! Have a great trip. Hope to see some great head/thorax/abdomen pics later!


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

We got a thousand points of light for the homeless man. We've got a kinder, gentler, machine gun hand. Neil Young, Rockin' in the Free World.

Worrying about the "browning of America" is not racism. -- Faith

I hate you all, you hate me -- Faith

No it is based on math I studied in sixth grade, just plain old addition, substraction and multiplication. -- ICANT
