Well, I mean, why not? Why in the only everloving world we’ve ever known the hell not?

A friend of mine* owns half of an entire mountain with the lava plug of an old volcanic cone at the summit. (No, not shown in photo.) He and I are going to make a “run for the cone” on some sort of two-wheel all-terrain contraption that should carry both of us. At the top of this mountain is supposed to be an ancient UFO landing site and lots of petroglyphs. Lord, I love New Mexico. This will be extremely dangerous and crazy. We are mighty warriors!

* You may think the title refers to following him. Not so. He’s following, too.

      Some things just have to be done! There are also hundreds of elk on this mountain, which happens to be the same place our 500-year-old piñon firewood comes from. I’ve been there once. There was even talk of mummies, but I didn’t find any.
