Re: excellent shot

Thank you! Definitely go there if you haven't been before. It's an amazing place, and there are only a few spots in the world where there are gypsum dunes like these. Just bring your sunglasses. This place can be tough on the eyes.

At the end of a rainbow!

Re: Surreal!

Thank you! It was an interesting afternoon, thunderclouds all around but enough sunlight to make some really interesting conditions.

Re: Super shot!

Thank you, Byron. I've never had a POTD before, so that was pretty cool. I wish it had been for a climbing rather than a hiking shot, but I still appreciate all the favorable response I've gotten on this. The funny thing was that I just recently had this picture reprinted when I was thinking about making a White Sands page. So it almost never made it here!

Re: Another Nice One!

Thanks, Mark! I never imagined this would take off the way it did, but it was pretty cool that it did. I just reprinted it to use on the White Sands page I was making.

Re: Rockin'

Thank you! I will be in Wyoming-- the Absarokas, Gros Ventres, and Great Divide Basin this July; and Colorado over Labor Day. Next summer, I hope to be around your neighborhood.

Re: Rockin'

Not finalized, but definitely the southern parts north of Dubois, and quite possibly eastern Yellowstone, the South Fork area, and west of Meteetse (from the Kirwin area).
