Camp Hale Weekend

I spent this weekend down near Camp Hale.  Camp Hale was a training location for the 10th Mountain Division during 1940's.  It is amazing country with spectacular views.

I also stumbled across some metal discs.

Upon closer inspection these appear to be the metal caps that went on the fiber tubes containing a 75mm shell and hand grenades respectively.  Pretty cool to stumble across a small piece of WWII history right here in Colorado.
