Just last week, Terry and I took to the woods on the Uncompahgre Plateau gathering firewood
The day was bright, warm, and full of dust from passing vehicles
It was beautiful.
But very, very dry.
Back we went yesterday, the chill air
Sparkling on the frozen crystals on the ground
growing deeper and more lovely, as we drove.
It didn’t take long before we had another load of firewood. This time in rich moisture; the first of the season!
