Swirls of Light and Rain

Vernon and I went for a drive this afternoon just to get away.  If we stay here, we tend to find work, so a drive is a good option.  We headed towards our Mesa Pasture, the one burned in the wildfire last year.  I still have not been all over it this year, just to see how it’s progressing, and I thought this would be a good time for a tour.

Scattered showers were flitting about, but nothing looked serious.

Puff.

Puff.

White smoke swirled and lifted.

Sure enough, a juniper tree was on fire.  Nothing big, but it was the end to my night of touring around.  A smidge of work and it was out…

but the storm had left me with some fantastic swirls of light and rain.
