Fritillary Coulee
I know how disappointed all of you Strange-Trippers are at not seeing a weekly Fritillaria pudica photo. Well, maybe you'll be happy with this shot of the coulee where they grow.

Wouldn't it be fun to get to name things on maps? I remember once a long time back when I was helping a farmer fill out a water-rights application. He told me a story about taking some guy named "Coggan" out duck-hunting on this one pond. Coggan fired off several mighty shotgun blasts without bringing down a single bird. Well, they had a space on the form for "Name of Feature", so we christened that pond "Coggan's Disgrace".
