Gathering Wood —- Monday, November 25, 2019

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!
