Cogswell Tower

Jeff and I went to the desert yesterday for a little tower climbing.  After a lot of driving around we found and climbed Cogswell Tower via a route named Raven.  Back at the car by 2pm we decided to look around for a tower called the Anvil.  After searching for an hour or more we decided it was on the other rim of the canyon and settled for a very cool looking feature called Enchanted Mesa.  With one real pitch of climbing we were back at the car before dark.  On the drive out we noticed a dome right next to the road with Moki Steps carved in and ran up and down for a quick ascent.  To top off a great day, we picked up Amanda at home on our way back into Durango and had some wings at Cuckoo's.
