The rear of our Durango condo faces south. The main living areas are on the second & third floors so we have great views over the town and the southern & eastern skies from our bedroom windows and balcony off the great room.

You can lay in bed at night and just stare out those huge windows at the sky and it is absolutely incredible. The clarity of the view, the number of stars, it just blows you away. Can't wait until we build our house since that is 11 miles south of town out on the Florida Mesa and there will be even less artificial light to affect the view of the nighttime skies.

Went to the Grand Mesa today fishing. A couple of the lakes (ie reservoirs) were not iced over and you can really only get to two. I managed to catch 8 rainbow trout, kept the two biggest ones. All of the trails are closed due to snow, and it looks like part of an overhang at the Visitors Center collapsed due to snow. Sunny and 60 up there today.

A couple of photos:

Tonight about 10pm since it cooled DOWN to 65 outside and was still 80 in my crib, I decided to go for a walk around town. I saw one car. I forgot how dark it is here. Some photos:

Friday was Ridgway's Farmers Market, some nice but a tad pricey stuff, this weekend was the Heritage and Western Days. Rodeo on Saturday, a country dance Saturday night, and some things to do in the town park Sunday. VERY pleasant weather, cooler, some rain showers, cool breezes. I forgot how NICE it smells here after a rain shower.

Riverfest is this Saturday. It's pretty fun.

Ridgway River Festival

I can see smoke from the East Fork fire about 10 miles east of me. And from Montrose this weekend could see smoke from the wildfire near Creede. There was a small wildfire (5 acres) near Ouray the other day. Firefighters have been busy, and everyone here is kinda holding their breath hoping for an end to these hot dry winds.

Riverfest was yesterday, lots of people there, and it was HOT, temps in the low 90's and muggy too. An afternoon thundershower cooled things down a bit. The Uncompahgre is clear and cool.

Wow, 90s and muggy in Ridgway. Is this the end of the world?
The river sure does look good. I love Ridgway.
