Quiet 4th of July
We had a dismal 4th of July...very quiet...not full in any of our campgrounds. It sure doesn't help when there is a complete fire ban or that Brian Williams and Diane Sawyer reports on evening news that all of Colorado is on fire.
People didn't want to come up to camp or even picnic when there is a fire ban and they can't make s'mores or have a camp fire. BUT South Fork is fine, blue skies and the creek through the campground is at the perfect height for fly fishing.
Happily it has rained a little every day since the first of July. Hopefully they will lift the fire ban if the rain keeps up daily.
We enjoyed the rest of the time with The Two Lindas, sharing veggie meals and visiting their last day here with The Abeytas, who came in for a week's stay. So one set of friends left and another came in. It is so wonderful when we can spend so much of our summer with friends who come to visit and camp with us.
I'll post photos next week when I have more time. I'm not getting any internet service at the campground so I am coming up to Wolf Creek Ranch and use their wifi to publish my blog.
Remember, you are loved.
