This part of the trail to
Sawmill was very
monotonous, in that it
varied not one bit.

Re-loading our own
30.06 rifle shells.

Shooting the 30.06 rifles
with the shells we reloaded.

Aspen trees
Disease or Lightning?
The same small trees,
the same straight trail.
Yet at the same time
it did have its charms.

A very precise and
many-step process.

Shooting at our own
targets that we provided.

There was  just to many
'struck' at the same
height to be lightning?

Tobasco Who?
In 1993, Dirty Larry was cleaning the coals from the wood burner at Cypher’s Mine
with another staff member while joking about what would make a great band name.
The door of the wood burner had the name, “Tabasco” on it.
A crew from Africa told them a few days prior that they called a wood burner a ‘donkey’.
So
... The Tobasco Donkeys was born and we’ve been using it ever since.

". . . It really hit home for us when a staff member referred to a water heater
as a, ‘tobasco donkey’.
A what?
They were just water heaters when we worked out there.
We have our place in Philmont history. What an honor."
