Love this photo  You always find such interesting stuff to share with us! I did another entry this morning with photos of Boulder Sandstone ledges to illustrate an excerpt from the novel I wrote 46 years ago called "Sandstone" about Boulder country characters who peopled my childhood.  Gerry http://journals.aol.com/gehi6/daughters-of-the-shadow-men/
