We took off Wednesday and headed over to Salida and Buena Vista, Colorado. We were in-between the next set of work on the farm. The only thing having to be done was the irrigation, which Misty did for us — 6 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, 10 at night. Bladen helped.
A little vacation was what we needed!
Three days and two nights.
We only had one spot of road construction going over Serro Summit toward Salida. We only saw one wreck (which was great –and it looked like no one was hurt). Traffic was light.
Everywhere is dry, dry, dry.
Coming back we headed on out of Buena Vista, Colorado, over Cottowood Pass toward the headwaters of our irrigation system…..Taylor Lake.
Wouldn’t you know it?! There was my Sunday Stills Photo Op—-
A twenty minute wait while they blasted through rock while widening the road.
Everything was extremely dry.
While we were there we experienced two rain storms. One lasted an hour and the other 15 minutes. We were delighted!
Also, while we were there we met many people from Colorado Springs who had been evacuated from the Waldo Canyon Fire and others who had come over from Fort Collins to get away from the smoke.
Also, while we were there we found out that the Pine Ridge Fire had started in our neck of the woods. The smoke is terrible in the Debeque Canyon and in Grand Junction. We can see the huge dark plums rising over the mountains.
So Sad! So very sad.
Hopefully the rains will start soon. Those two showers we experienced were just plain delightful!
