One day last week we took a wee ride; after putting the top on the car 🙂
This was the most darling yard in Ouray, Colorado. I just had to take a photo to share it with you.
As everyone knows, not only is the west burning, we are also in the midst of a terrible drought. Water has been extremely short this year; areas in the up-country (Cedaredge and the North Fork truly suffering for water.)
Here on the farm, we have made due with 60% or less of our allotment (we have shares of Uncompaghre Valley Water).
The horror stories of the shrinking of our dams prompted us to drive up and see…Blue Mesa is extremely low…extremely
Ridgway Dam so low the boat unloading and loading dock is wayyyyy up there.
Everyone is saying if it doesn’t snow this winter…and snow LOTS! In feet of snow…there will be no farming next year.
Still, no matter what, I have hope!
