There use to be a time when the climbers had long hair and were hassled by the local cowboys.

Bill St Jean one time, while sitting in a restaurant in Pinedale Wy, was hauled out and given a proper haircut by the locals.

But times have changed and now it is often difficult to tell the difference between a cowboy and a climber. This might help clarify that cultural blending, then again it may not.

Another way to look at it, being a man is a full time job!

While I have spent my share of days at work in the saddle, laboring as a farriar, bucking bales and breaking the honery horse and mule, some of my friends and clients bestowed upon me the title of 'honorary lesbian.'

Now I understand better.... Live and learn.

Just back from Pinedale and boy has it changed since 1968! You can even
get an espresso with your haircut these days!

The mountains are still good...

Pinedale, Wyo?






Hell, that place was hardly a town in '68. Like Hudson.



The population was 1,412 at the 2000 census.
(From Wiki)

And according to one of the real estate seller sites, it STILL doesn't have a single stoplight!


You been around too long.


Like me. (I remember it in 69.)

you can bury me
on deadwood mountain
by my brother wild bill
and sister calamity jane
don't bring me no flowers
just a six gun smokin'
and put me 8 feet down
when you bury me

when your heart runs deeper
than a ghost town gold mine
you know you're just bound to find
that mother lode

you'll spend your last heartbeat
chasin' after rainbows
no there's no place you won't go...

OK. I finally understand now.

When I was hitchhiking outside of Jackson Hole with ice axe and crampons tied to the outside of my backpack, the local cowboys threw empty beer cans at me because they thought I was a lesbian???

All this time I thought they just didn't like climbers.
