Cabin visit

We've decided to use the term 'cabin' when discussing the new property. It fit, and while we have a name thought of once we take possession, 'cabin' works well enough.

My best friend of 20 years just moved to town, and wanted to see the cabin. We loaded up and headed out on Saturday morning after moving a couple of items into his apartment. It was a beautiful day, but we found the road crew working in front of the property.


It seems there was a log jam up stream and it cause most of the road to flood out. There wasn't anything amiss on the cabin property, just some overflow water near the creek itself. The creek was very high.

The county road crew said "the guy who owns the water got rid of the log jam". This peaked my curiosity on the whole water rights, so I contacted a lawyer this morning about it. In Colorado having water rights is one thing, but if someone has senior water rights they have priority. The road crew also said it was the first time this had ever happened, so that's good news.

On the way to the cabin we watched a helicopter take a drink.

Here are some shots from the area and one from the garden.




Yesterday we spent several hours in the yard and house getting all the chores done. We had fallen behind but with some high activity level, we took care of it all. I got the inside chores to help with the allergies, and it sucks to cut the grass with a dust mask on.
The garden is looking amazing, just lacking a few cucumbers so I need to replant in a small section. We already have green tomatoes growing, the blueberries are starting to form, the rosemary is amazing, a random potato started growing next to a random onion that's next to the wild lettuce.

We also added 45 miles to the ATV's, it can't all be work. I hope everyone had a productive weekend as well!
