Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Went for a little road trip with Inklings last night. We went south to check a road we are reconditioning and see how great it was. We drove to the end of the reconditioned part and it was nice - REALLY NICE. We drove across the unconditioned part just so I could remember how bad it really was before it was ground up and reconditioned. It was a great trip saw lots of elk and a few deer.

We got home late because we didn't leave early enough to get clear across the mountain in the daylight (and Inklings had to try out her new camera). We ended up going off the east side of the mountain and home via paved highway and still didn't get home until after 10:00 p.m. It was a great trip even though my truck won't climb a mountain with the air conditioner on. Luckily it was cool enough that if we rolled down the windows we were fine.

Inklings posted a few pictures of the trip.

Sounds nice. I wish I lived that close to mountains.
