Wyoming '99: Monday
The rocks in the monument were cut from the big Vedauwoo-like pile of rocks in the background.
The kids continued having fun with Scout, while Joe rested in the shade. We were the first ones there, so we were just waiting for everyone else to show up.
The stone in the foreground is the old pivot at the center of the roundhouse at Sherman, and the small rise below the person in the background is probably an old railroad grade. All the rails and ties have been removed from the many tracks that used to run through here, but when the railroad did come by here, it would stop to water the locomotives (the old steam trains needed their water), and everyone could get out and walk up to the monument.
