August

Monsoons Continue
The complete month of August usually consists of clear skys in the mornings, clouding in the afternoons, with good chances for rain in the area. It doesn’t always rain exactly where you are, but you can usually see some from where you are.

Afternoon.
The north was shows signs of recent water flow, and a growth of nice green vegetation.

Afternoon.
The meadow is starting to recover from the abuse it took while installing the septic system last spring. It still has a ways to go, but hopefully fall/winter rains will help.

Afternoon.
On our last two trips up here, we have had the rabbits walking right through camp, and grazing nearby. Once we move, they will let us get about 40 feet away from them before they move a few feet further away.

Our neighbors not only got the roads named, but sprung for a nice sign to prove it.
