Thursday afternoon we headed up Payson Canyon to get out of the oppressive heat. It was gorgeous and much cooler at the top. There was a fire to the west and so the sky was a little smokey depending on the direction we looked.
These cows were way down in a meadow. We were near the 9,000 foot summit here.
Does anyone know what kind of spider makes these enormous webs in the trees?
|Thursday's Heroes happened again today. We were invited to watch the scrimmage at the stadium and then had lunch inside the Smith Field House, out of the heat. None of us complained about that!|
|Ammon Olsen meeting Ammon Clark. Olsen is one of the quarterbacks.|
|Scrimmage in 100 degree weather.|
Coach Mendenhall taking time to talk to all the heroes. He doesn't forget Ammon.
In other news, there is a fire on the mountain just around the corner from Elk Ridge - across the street from Camp Maple Dell. There has been a lot of lightening and I'm sure that's what caused the fire. We just got a very hard downpour of rain but it didn't last long enough to put out the fire. The wind has been blowing from the south. I'm hoping they are able to contain the fire and that we don't have to evacuate. As the crow flies, it's probably about 2 miles from our place. (Looks just like the fire going up the mountain near Jess' place today.)
So my vacation time is nearly over. I will go back to work on Monday. I have worked hard but have enjoyed the projects. I've really enjoyed spending the time with Jim and Ammon. It makes me wish even harder that I could retire so I could enjoy life a whole lot more. Still many more projects to do but I guess they will wait.
