Which West are you?

Mike and BulletThis past week my wife and I, along with Bear the Wonder Dog, hiked Mount Humphreys. Towering over Flagstaff, the 12,000-foot peak is the highest point in Arizona.

Like much of the mountain west, Flagstaff is a place of dichotomy. It speaks of crusty cowboys, college kids, sun burnt tourists, and hardcore mountain bikers.

And so it was no surprise on opening the ammo can that serves as the peak’s register to find both a Tibetan prayer flag and a .45 caliber shell.

In many ways I found the two artifacts a perfect representation of the modern West, one which were waring a cowboyhat with Tevas is perfectly normal.

Which West are you? Answer below.
