    wynative. Used to fly in that neck of the woods (for an airlines many, many years ago). . .all the garden spots, including Miles City (not a garden), Duluth (colder than a you know what), and Casper (now there's a wiff of air that doesn't go down too easy . . .the chemical/oil smells). Anyway, I am going to relate in this 9-part series the entire 1869 intrigue, which, as you may or may not know, Major Powell had telescoped his epic tome, meaning he included both expeditions, yet the readers in his time, and for some many years after, never knew there were two different trips. As for closing down the 'Yellow,' no way; it's not going to happen. This lame Congress and the Pres. has got to come to their senses and stop mucking around with what's really important and least important (i.e., their excessive salaries, wonton spending for stuff we no longer need to spend money on), and on. I'm hurrying to put the final touches on today's Powell diary. P. S. You are going to go nuts (in a good way) when you see the Waterpocket Fold country! Guaranteed!

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
