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.

Lake Tahoe – taking time
Taking a moment to enjoy a hike on the Van Sickle Park. Nice climb that provides a beautiful view of the lake. So important to take time to truly appreciate the fact that the water came initially came from glaciers. Sitting to listen to the wind singing through the trees and disconnect from technology
‘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.
Today as I read about a war over water it really brings to mind how many do not think about it’s importance until it is limited. How one group creating a dam creates hardship for those down stream leading to distrust and fighting that did not exist previously.
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.

Funny for the day. Thank you Oldtimers.
Love Questions to Start Day
Having a powerful question to start your day can help to reframe how you will approach each minute.
Criticism versus Constructive Feedback
Remember those who have your best interest at heart will give you constructive feedback to help you grow. Those who criticize/shame/devalue you are focused only on their own ego.
Hooray for hibred pumpkin
Thrilled that the pumpkin seeds from last year‘s Halloween pumpkins grew and created something new and fun.
I can see a delicious batch of salsa in my future.
