Ramblings about Education

Listen to Warnings

When the Forestry Department and Firefighters tell the community there is a high fire danger please be respectful and restrain. Continuing to use BBQ and campfires along with handling fire carelessly can put people/animals/structures at risk. Thankful for the quick response of firefighters. The fire was quickly under control. Hopefully as the night continues they will be able to fully extinguish.


‘Hello, did you say you were from Colorado? I am from Paonia. Have you been there?” comments a lady taking the Ms Dixie II. “Yes we have. Love the Apple Festival in Cedaredge. Delta has grown a little over the years but is still a fun small town.” Here we are on the California and Nevada boarder chatting about her growing up about 1.5 hours away from my town in Colorado. So fun to take the risk and talk with a stranger while on a tour.

Pondering …..

Traveling down Hwy 50 from Utah to Nevada it was very peaceful. But sometimes boring because it would be 15+ minutes in between when we would see another vehicle. I would disagree that it is the Loneliest Hwy in America. It simply has larger gaps between towns. There is still lots of interesting things to see such as markers for the Pony Express.
