I was too lazy on July 4th to post anything with flags or fireworks!
But it is still July and still time for eating watermelon.
It took me a very long time to cut this watermelon in half.
Now it's time to move in and enjoy. I'm going to pause here for a while and think about how to go about this. In the mean time...
ENJOY YOUR JULY!!!
A week ago, I visited this 1,000 year old community early in the morning. There aren't very many who still live in the pueblo. It was hard to believe anyone was really inside this adobe structure.
The dogs were just waking up.
And I did see a chimney through the opening of the church wall...with signs of life.
It was so peaceful at this early hour...thinking. A lot of things haven't changed much in 1000 years. There is still no running water or electricity within the Pueblo walls. But I wish I could have visited maybe 55 years ago, to see a morning filled with activity.
South Park City
I decided to wander this old ghost town and transition away from all the nature photos... with flowers.
So there is a dandelion in this picture, but I'm sitting on an old rusty piece of metal.
I like that.
Nope. These are tracks from for an old mining car.
I figured the tall weeds meant that nothing has moved on these tracks for a long time.
Give me a sturdy piece of wood to stand on for a change! I'm tired of flowers that bend under your weight. This worn old piece didn't quiver when the wind blew either!
I'm not sure what this old cart or wagon once carried, but I'm sure these wheels have traveled through a lot of snow and mud.
It was beautiful on this June day. Just a little snow in the distant mountains.
One more texture for me on this day! Hay! It was a little itchy, but at least there were no needles hiding.
A Bale of Hay
I've always wanted to climb in a hay stack and this is almost as good. I had a good view of the old steam engine and a wooden water tower.
This was a nice break from all the nature I've been forced to enjoy lately!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
