Helping Papa on The Weekend6:00 AM
For days now Corrine has been asking "Where Papa?" Well. Papa has been on the mountain cutting trees. There are a lot of pine beetle killed trees in Colorado and my dad has been thinning the forest on the mountain property where the cabin is. He has a forest plan with the forest service and every summer he cuts trees. We have a never ending supply of firewood. Part of the work is hauling the limbs into slash piles...that would normally be my job. Corrine has been saying "Help papa cut tree on mountain." Today we went to help. She did a great job "helping" pick up twigs. She put them in the bucket and we dumped the bucket on the pile.
Carousel of Happiness for a ride. Or five. The carousel is a restored 1910 carousel with all hand carved animals. The carousel is the result of a vision one man and he is the one who carved the animals, it is staffed by volunteers and the proceeds are donated to charity.
