    I rode over that in 1979 on my bicycle with 2 guys from college. Nice view of the landscape. It was a long haul up that hill. and a long way down the other side.

    This is an excellent overview of many of the best attractions in the USA! Amazing that you have been around so much of that huge country. I agree that 'Devils Tower' does look spooky and nice observation on why the Shakers died off too ;-)

    About the mailboxes--the homeowner puts the flag up when they have outgoing mail so the postman knows to collect the outgoing mail. The postman puts the flag down once he's collected it.
