Rugged Terrain

Take a look at these two satellite images. The first one is the mountainous region on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is where Osama bin Laden is thought to be hiding, and where our troops are fighting the Taliban.

The second one is the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.

Be sure to thank a member of the United States Armed Forces for taking on the task of finding one guy in that vast, rugged wasteland.

OK, I'm not from Missouri, but I had to click on the links to see the maps.

On the Rocky Mountain map, I clicked on the labels, then tried to determine the distance from Fairplay to Climax.
