scouts-l Mail Archive for August of 2000: Re: Interesting Logistical Info

I have several friends who live in Cortez. They were keeping me up to date
by email. The great story is it is a hotbed for archeologists. Dozens of
retired ones and everyone else on the planet who likes to study US digs.
They would gather together and dance little jigs because the fire was
opening up areas for digs they did not know about. (The previous fire
tripled the number of sites in Mesa Verde.) When ever someone would walk
buy they would quite down, but then they would start dancing again. Some a
devastation, to some a celebration.
