She seems to find the plants much more interesting

TGIF! Kick off the business shoes and head down to the lake. In this case, Bowman Lake, at Glacier National Park. #usinterior

Two days in and Iceland has been amazing so far

Got to see the Milky Way for the first time in my life, it was a surreal experience

Sometimes the best pictures are the ones that are most simple

4th of July shenanigans (just in case you haven't seen enough firework pictures)

Lake days

Gotta love the coast

Love long summer nights

Thought this thing looked cool

Starting to feel like summer

Winter was nice and all, but it's good to have summer back

Just having a good time. Really hope to be able to start going places again soon

REDSTONE COKE OVENS...PIC FROM LAST FALL. Illuminated by moonlight.
THESE "BEEHIVE" COKE OVENS WERE CONSTRUCTED IN THE LATE 1890'S TO
CARBONIZE OR "COKE" COAL MINED IN COAL BASIN FOR THE COLORADO FUEL AND
IRON COMPANY. A NARROW-GAUGE RAILROAD, APPROXIMATELY 12 MILES LONG
(REMOVED IN 1941) BROUGHT THE COAL DOWN GRADES EXCEEDING 4% FROM
THE MINE TO REDSTONE. TOTAL COAL PRODUCTION WAS 1.1 MILLION TONS. THE
COKE MADE AT THESE OVENS WAS THEN SHIPPED TO PUEBLO BY WAY OF THE
STANDARD GAUGE CRYSTAL RIVER RAILROAD. CF&I DISCONTINUED COKING
OPERATIONS IN 1908.
COKE IS MADE WHEN SPECIAL COALS ARE HEATED TO DRIVE OFF VOLATILE
MATTER AND MOISTURE IN THE ABSENCE OF OXYGEN. COAL WAS CHARGED INTO
THESE OVENS FROM THE TOP AND AFTER CHARGING THE OVENS WERE SEALED FOR
48 HOURS EXCEPT FOR A SMALL AMOUNT OF AIR WHICH WAS ADMITTED TO
SUPPORT ENOUGH COMBUSTION TO MAINTAIN A COKING TEMPRATURE. AS THE
FINISHED COKE WAS WITHDRAWN FROM THE OVENS IT WAS QUENCHED WITH WATER
TO PREVENT FURTHER COMBUSTION.
