We had an amazing weekend enjoying the glorious beauty of the Colorado mountains. We traveled up to a high meadow, in the cool air above 11,000'. This spot has been a long-time favorite for our family. K was exuberant the whole time that we were there, rolling in the grass, galloping, yipping, and joyful. She was so joyful that she could barely contain herself at times.
Over our time in our favorite meadow campsite, we did notice that the horizon became progressively smoky. We listened to the radio and heard about the many fires in our wonderful state. On Saturday, 8 were burning. Today, I think that there are fewer but the remaining ones are huge and out of control.
