I know what you mean. Even the clouds up there had red dust in them! 4 thousand feet above sea level. Sucked all the moisture out of me, thin air, red clay hocking up out of my nose, mouth sinuses and throat, lungs. But, all in all, its a beautiful place up there, and it feels good to be there. Just gonna pound out a few more one pagers, and then more big Star Treks.
