First impression:  Looks like the entrance to Yellowstone Park.  But, then and again, when it comes to borrowing authority, there’s nothing original for this crew.  In comparison, it’s not like these guys; these boys; these; or you know who needed the signage … and the flags … and the other two guys doing their thing, though. 

(Oh, did I mention the helicopter?)

Kudos to Brown, by the way, for playing it straight for two days.
