We’re going on 70 days with no rain up here on the twinravens range.  The lawns are bone dry and haven’t been mowed in 2 weeks.  The river really is slowing to a crawl but let me tell you that river is solid gold come 3 p.m.  Here is a little snap shot of this morning’s sunrise:


She’s one of those classic summer mornings in progress.  But gosh it’s hot already!

Yesterday I had a great time visiting with an art collector from down south and together we had a chance to look at some local First Nations art in one of the galleries on the rez, not far from here.  We saw some beauty pieces, both paintings and wearable including a few bear claw necklaces.  You can’t have too much art in one day so we ended up on the north shore of this great island, on a dock with a view!



The shadows too are sometimes quite interesting, quite artsy.

What a great day.  And what a great summer!  70 days of blue skies, blazing sunshine, art and music, moons and the Milky Way.  Yes indeed: this is Great!
