Two Buttes Reservoir

Buddy, can you spare a towel?

Hi! I'm new here. Don't actually have a gazillion pictures that I think are a) suitable for public display and b) fit the theme, but I've got some.

This was taken at Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the US, but not nearly as well known. It was a WPA/CCC site back in the Depression, and many of the rock structures those kids built are still around and in use. What you see here is the old bathhouse, as of last summer. There isn't a good path to it anymore, and they don't recommend people hiking down there due to rattlesnakes and such. I did it 10 years ago, but without a camera. Bit too creaky for it these days....
