Looks like they're not sand deposits, nor sedimentary.
Pegmatite is what I say when putting up a tent.

Impressive sight ....even from ~20k's away













Planning the summit-route...scrambling up 2 steps while sliding down 3 is tricky business.

Watching the results...








What a place!!
And in a few weeks, it'll be all snow up the top


















Along the top lip for the run, slide, skip and maybe tumble down the other side...

It's all downhill from here!















What an incredible place...and loads of fun, too!







Fellow travelers...







Cutting north on some gravel roads, the backcountry delivers its little surprises, as always.
A beaver-dam right next to the road...






An elk-cow, not fussed about the Kia at all...








A big herd of Buffalo along the side of a hill...










...and a place you wouldn't know it was there.










I'm sure I couldn't sleep in that place though...not for a second.






Already getting withdrawal symptoms...







Colorado... we'll be back.
And on a bike, that time, YO!!
