Just a short post today. I’ve been reading this morning about the fires in Colorado, a state that I loved living in, and I’m dreadfully sad about the destruction the Waldo Canyon Fire is leaving in its wake and the huge number of homes lost in the High Park Fire. My friend Bob Berwyn who lives in Colorado has been writing in double time about the fires in Colorado, in this article; Colorado: Waldo Canyon Fire rages into Colorado Springs, he has a recent image from the Pike’s Peak summit web cam. I remember well the view from the summit, it is a good thing I have those memories because that view has been changed dramatically.
Here in Utah I am constantly watching the sky for billowing clouds of the smoke of a new fire. We need rain, we need a good soaking.
Looking at these beautiful birds helps some to keep my mind off of the fires here in the west. For a little while anyway.
