A little wider view. Ship rock with the "sail" to the far left, Coffee Pot Rock on the right hand edge of the larger formation just left of center (next to the center rock). Look for an old percolator with the spout on the right edge. It is hard to see in this picture; come back and see it clearly from the intersection of Highway 89A and Coffee Pot Drive in the West Sedona area.

43 year tradition--red roses on her anniversary
The day of the BBQ happened to be our 43rd anniversary, and I nearly always give Sharon red roses. Two dozen this year, because we were so rushed with the meet and her doing the party. She really did well, didn't she?

Jim Jordan, Dennis Drury going into house, Hans Paar and Verryl. Verryl, long retired physicist, is acting like he understands recently retired physicist Hans' still ongoing research in The Atacama Desert, a plateau in South America, covering a 1,000-kilometre (600 mi) strip of land on the Pacific coast, west of the Andes mountains. It is the driest non-polar desert in the world. In an observatory at 18,000 feet his team is making years long delicate measurements of the polarizations of the microwave background radiation in an attempt to verify parts of cosmology theory, especially the so-called Inflation very soon after the Big Bang. Verryl seems to be pulling it off. The giant binos behind him are 4" lens diameter Chinese Army binoculars, Verryl uses to scan Cathedral Rock and carries it to a pier on the Observatory deck to use for astronomy.

Seated: Bob and Jo Burke (from back) and Brenda Jordan and Mike Oyaski. The Albuquerque Group is Doug Gary, Dave Stoll, Kent Shelton, Ed Hunter (plaid), and Buzz Lenander with his back turned. Buzz has made a fantastic N scale model of the entire Cheyenne Steam Yard even more complete than mine. He says he is missing 1 track; I am missing 4, but his is also more to scale lengthwise (east to west).
