Let's deal with the unfortunate part of this post title first. As you may already know, the High Park Fire has been raging for three days, about 2 hours northwest of Denver. Basically, last week Colorado was pummeled by storms containing hail and constant lightning (also a few minor funnel clouds). Dry mountains combined with lightning this time of year, usually causes at least one decent-sized forest fire. However, this one is huge, about 52 square miles. Courtesy of our local ABC station, here are a few shots: mountain side, viewer submitted slideshow.
Therefore, a slight campfire scent lingers in the air and an occasional haze is visible. Knowing that, and knowing that today was either a walk or interval run day for 5k training - Remy and I walked two miles this morning. My thoughts and prayers go to the hundreds of people / pets / wildlife affected by this fire.
Changing the focus, let's talk about food! Breakfast of melons and unpictured coffee.
Lunch: spaghetti, Basil & Garlic Tomato Sauce, Nate's Italian Meatless Balls - crumbled (their website is under construction), nooch.
Thank you for taking time to read this long post! Also, pray / meditate / dance for rain. Without lightning. :)
