I’ve driven past the wind farm at Judith Gap many times but last week was the first time I’ve ever seen them not moving at all. I couldn’t help but wish for the usual often strong wind thinking it might have blown away some of the thick smoke that can be seen obscuring the more distant structures. But perhaps it’s just as well it was still as the wind could just as likely blown even more smoke into the area.

A chipmunk pauses to pay it’s respects to our pointer Josie in our pet graveyard. Josie was nothing but lovable around humans but basically a scourge to pretty much anything on four legs, especially squirrels although I’m sure she’d have been quite happy giving this chipmunk a good chase.
