Went out for a walk this morning and spotted this old road warrior with her arms in the air.
Of course, she was here long before the road.
When Al Sieber and crew rode by here in 1874 on their way to the cave fight, she no doubt saw them.
By my estimation, I imagine she's been holding this position for about two hundred and fifty years.
