Summertime and the livin' is greasy

Warm daze in the Boulder Batholith...

Roadside Project - Northern Desert


Cactus Flowers are out


New one along the ridge north from Big Slabby



Brews & naps

Another warm day checking out projects in the Northern Dryads


up thar!

Odenbeck showed me this very nice project and we set to work - this rig is awesome!






He also showed me a pretty worthy OW, I worked out some beta, but the shorts and heat stymied the motivation...



Up and comers


Gumbo - a new addition in the N. Dryads

Couple from the CDT:

Alt view of the Kiss of Death proj - CDT
