Some years I get a glimpse of what a "normal" life, with time to hike and play in the summers, must be like. This year is one of those, at least so far.
After a long, snowy winter, May was surprising. Sunny days! Temperatures in the 70s and 80s! The snow melted rapidly. Hiking has been amazing.
I'm not in a hurry for fire season. My employees have been out, mostly to the southwest, some multiple times. Let them go! I'm happy to be here.
