14,800 ft above sea level in the Big Horn Mountains, Frank was one of two white men who crossed on the same trail that Crazy Horse did after killing General Custer at The Battle of Little Big Horn.  On the trip, Frank fractured his left hand and, on a similar trip the following year, he was thrown off his horse and fractured his collar bone and shoulder.  When asked to be taken to the doctor, his cowboy trail hand friends said, “Cowboy up and move on.”
