Devil's Tower in Wyoming. Familiar to many people as the backdrop of the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
It was an impressive stop on a recent vacation. The tower is over 800 feet high.

This is a gong drum that I built. Not too weird but decidely fun. 20" Keller mapler shell with Tama hardware and  21" timpani head.
Entirely hand sanded, color matched to an existing drum kit using a combination of aniline dyes, with spray poly finish coats.
