Written in 2003, or thereabouts.
This photo of our house, barns, and pastures was taken in June 1999, in a much greener year than this one, where we have suffered so severely from drought. This photo was taken from the hill to the north of our place.
The place looks much the same now: the only big difference is the fence built in 2000 around what we call "the new field" which in this photo is the meadow which lies east of the house (to the left.)
We have lived here almost ten years now, and sometimes the beauty of Colorado still takes my breath away.
Here is another photo, taken from about the same place, in November 2002.
