Leonard!

Dan!

I find it amusing that Rambo makes fun of the pretty boys when he is one.

Trent will love those Teton shots. We were talking about all the best places to watch the Perseian (sp?) meteor shower, and he mentioned the saddle between the middle and the grand Teton. So beautiful.

Delose,
Thanks so much for letting us invade your Sanctuary for a few days. I know you made sacrifices, and they were appreciated.

I miss those days, and being at camp. You are a good man, and I don't care what anyone else says.

Kent and Mike,

It is wonderful to hear from you. I am so glad to share these pictures and thought with you. It makes them of more value to me to know they are of some value to you.
