This is my son and daughter in law. This was taken in Williams about 3 hours east of me. Catie is now working the Willow fire in Mohave Valley. It`s 6,000 acres as of last night. In a nutshell she makes sure the fire fighters have what they need. She`s a firefighter/EMT. The fire is about a two hour drive from here. We had a lot of smoke two days ago. It was better yesterday. My son was also a firefighter. He`s disabled. He flew Helitak for NPS and BLM. I`m proud of them.
Desert Paintbrush. Not too much of that this year. Too dry.
Leftovers of monsoon rains last week. That sure was welcome. Temperatures dropped about 20 degrees. That was great!
This stone building was the Lost Basin Post Office 1884-1894. Lost Basin is where the mining claims are. This building is disappearing stone by stone. I know there was an application to get it on the Historic Register to protect it. I don`t know how that turned out. People have camped inside off and on since it closed.
I had more pictures but since the upgrade I can`t upload pics into the computer. It needs a bug fix. I always intend to post more often but I have discovered, as have others,that second year widowhood has it`s own issues.. I have sewing projects heaped on my kitchen table. I sort of shuffle them around. good intention etc. I`m moving along. It`s taking a little longer than I thought. Thanks for visiting. I appreciate it. Prayers for all the firefighters on all the fires and their families!
