  1. Been thinking about you guys. Is your property ok? The fire in Co Springs was really scary and sad. It’s almost contained and life returning to normal. 347 homes lost 🙁
    Al and I are hoping to get to Crested Butte next week for the Wildflower Festival. Let’s hope these fires are all out soon and no new ones start.
    Safe travels, Ingrid

    • Thanks for thinking of us Ingrid. Our property made it through that awful fire. I can’t imagine what those folks who lost their home in the Springs are going through. I hope you and Al get to see some wildflowers. We’ve been having some nice rain in Lake City, so keep your fingers crossed it continues. Have fun and thanks for reading!
