My wife and I got an afternoon to get out on Sunday and skied into Mt. Rooseveldt where Seth Bullock built a memorial to his friend Teddy. Hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas and you have friendships in your life that are powerful enough to build monuments to.

I was just talking about this tower yesterday. We were talking about what towers in the hills he hadn't been to yet. He had never head of Roosevelt tower before.

I'll show him your pics to give him something to shoot for.

Hard to get up that spiral staircase with your skis on ;-)

I just got back from Hot Springs on Monday.
1 degree there when I left, -7 going through Edgemont.
Brrrr! even in the car! Finally down to Denver, where it
was a balmy 47 degrees. Quite the swing!

Wasn't Seth Bullock the sheriff of Deadwood? Amazing he survived the occupation. Especially there and then.

Merry Christmas.
