Monday, 7/19

Had a nice morning taking a break from being out in the badlands. Did some chores in town and got a chai latte in my favorite little coffee shop. Made some calls and got caught up on some work stuff then took off to go pick up my friend, Jason, at the small airport in Dickinson, ND. He’s coming in to join me on the dig for a week. Looking forward to the help and companionship.

We stopped off at the Painted Canyon overlooking the TRoosevelt Nat’l Park. Kind of a requirement for me to stop and take in the view each time I pass it.

Got back to camp and enjoyed a steak dinner on the grill with Jason. Look forward to exploring the badlands tomorrow.
