I always try to eat delicious food. Unfortunately I don't have that much money, so I have to cook a lot of it at home. But thats OK because I love cooking and I love eating at home with my wife. This is a website with my favorite recipes and a little bit of commentary.

Mount Moriah

One day we decided to go to Mount Moriah. There are great views of Deadwood from Mount Moriah. It is also the site of the cemetery for the town and a lot of famous individuals are buried there.
In the cemetery you can see the graves of Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane and Seth Bullock.
We were surprised how true to life the HBO series Deadwood was. A lot of the characters in the series actually lived in Deadwood and behaved as they were portrayed.
Seth Bullock, for instance, really was the sheriff and he really did open a hardware store.
As we were climbing to the top of the mountain, we were able to see why the town was named Deadwood.
Then, as now, dead trees were on the hills surrounding the gulch.
When we got to the summit there was some sort of solar powered weather station, with a warning to watch out for lightening.
From the summit you get an excellent view of Deadwood. If you look closely in the foreground of the photo you can see Seth Bullock's grave.
