A piece of Dry Fork Station made its way to the South Pole earlier this year.
Bob Berger, husband of former Wyoming Rep. Rosie Berger, wore his Dry Fork Station cap to Antarctica on a sight-seeing trip Jan 5-12, “… seeing the wonders of the ice and wildlife in this amazing part of the world,” he says.
He got his Dry Fork Station cap two or three years ago on a tour of Dry Fork Station, near Gillette, WY. “I was truly impressed with the plant, its cleanliness, and the sophistication of the system that allows the crew to monitor output from other sources to plan for the level of electricity production at Dry Fork,” Berger says. “At every appropriate opportunity, I have told people that Dry Fork is a model of efficient production of electricity in a modern, clean plant. If people are saying there is no such thing as clean coal, they have not seen Dry Fork.”
Berger says he wore his Dry Fork Station cap because he likes it. “I wore it the whole trip because it’s the nicest cap I could find in my stash of caps to take with me,” he says.
