Happy Fall.Maybe we can leave the wows of winter/spring/summer behind.

Looking toward maybe getting out now that it's fall.

Hopefully in a week or so there will be fewer people out there.With school opening ,

even if it's at home there might be less campers.

 

Enjoy the next season in this weird year.

Wow Mark that's nasty looking.

Smoke mostly gone around here.

The fire that is still little contained is the Dolan fire past Big Sur.

 

The Condor sanctuary was destroyed. So far all but 9 adults and 4 chicks are accounted for.

Most of the adults went over to the Pinnacles and are safe there.

 

It's been too smokey for the Ventana people to get back in there and search for the missing.

They are still holding out to locate all missing.

In the last major fire there 2008 the chicks survived.There's hope.

We sat up high this morning celebrating the first day of meteorological fall and watched the wildland fire smoke move in from the east......................

Pretty warm here in far Western Colorado yet, but its starting to cool a little and our wildfire smoke has dissipated nicely. Snowed on the higher peaks overnight 9/1, so cooler air can be found pretty easily. Hoping the crowds have thinned a bit...

Forecast Sunday for Camarillo (near the coast) is 103*. We considered heading up to our cabin project at 7200’ but rejected that idea due to projected Labor Day crowds.

Not looking forward to the heat. I have to help my dad on friday so I may have to risk the holiday crowds. Ugh.

We are approaching the equinox. We have sure noticed the later light in the morning and the earlier darkness come nightfall. And it's not just the smoke.

Yeah, we are feeling cooler morning temperatures and a change in light during the day. The sun is noticeably lower angle southward in the afternoons and evenings. All our garden plants are sensing the difference, particularly the giant eleven foot sunflower, which grew like crazy until a couple of days ago and now seems to be drooping and  settling in to being bird food. When I get up to make coffee it is often still dark. Always loved the changing seasons. Less than 3 weeks until the days are shorter than the nights.
