Well of course the big news here is the High Park Fire. At times the smoke has been severe, some people are wearing masks around town, it has caused some breathing problems which I felt was a good excuse to sit quietly and stitch.
Ethan and I ‘went to work’ with Jerry for part of the day. He had to run several paperwork errands on jobs in the works, one of which took us up to Cheyenne, Wyoming. The sky was pretty in Wyoming, not much smoke. There’s not much to see once you get near the Colorado Wyoming border, lots of dry land and water pump windmills. I took this windmill picture on the way back toward Colorado, it’s starting to look smokey again. Every now and then the wind shifts and you can see the mountains again, and look there is still a bit of snow, not as much as there should be but that is another story.
This is how the fire looked from my street just a little while ago tonight.
