This is my favorite place on earth — Chimney
Rock, also known as Camel Rock, which sits astride
the Colorado / Wyoming border south of Laramie.
The rock itself is about five feet into Colorado,
but the hill it sits on straddles both states.
I chased this rainbow up the hill from Wyoming
into Colorado for at least 45 minutes, using
it for a background for quite a few photographs.
My grandparents homesteaded the ranch here
in 1932 after having their 4500 acres foreclosed
by family members during the great depression.
Land in this general vicinity has been in my
mother’s family since 1880, when my great-great-grandparents
came from Prussia.
