More fire, more smoke. The wind direction kept smoke (mostly) south of town, redirecting on a path more favorable to oxygen providers and pulmonary specialists in Cheyenne; and to think there are those who say forest fire smoke doesn't do any good for anybody!
Last rain on May 28th, and things continue to dry out. Maybe a hurricane will show up soon, for a little change in climate.
More mapping, with a lot of gingerly stepping around patches of cheat grass. It's not quite ready to go, but the season of the fatal combination of cheat grass + socks is not far away, and where I was mapping is the last of the south facing slopes I had to face, so from here on out, the cheat grass danger to my personal lower leg integrity will diminish, at least while I am mapping.
No cows yet in the area where I am working, while they have showed up in numerous other pastures up in the Forest. It makes me envious and I wonder if I should switch event areas to take advantage of the cattle where they exist, rather than where I want them to be?
Ran trails, and ran out to the East Headquarters Snowfield, which was gone--it must have melted out over the weekend. Maybe it will start forming up again right around Labor Day, if we're lucky.
