This series of photos captures the stark contrast of the sky the other morning when we drove from Moab through a gnarly forest fire blazing close to the highway just south of Provo, Utah.🔥🌲 .

After starting out with bluebird skies (pics 1 & 2), you can see the landscape transform into a sooty, sulphur haze (pics 3 & 4). The mountains were veiled in dirty yellow smoke, some traffic was diverted, and hundreds of people have been evacuated from their homes.

You could see ash falling from the sky; it reminded me of "The Road" with Viggo Mortensen and felt very end-of-the-worldish. 😕

Currently writing this post while listening to the hurricane rains in DC. Definitely needing a breather! Today I went to the National Museum of American History, a Smithsonian Institute. The Smithsonian Institutes are free of charge, and at this particular one you can see our first Star-Spangled Banner 🇺🇸 (thanks mom for the tip!). You can also see Dorothy’s red slippers, but unfortunately right now they’re off display. And of course, there’s plenty to learn. Did you know that Chinese laborers built large portions of our railways, especially in California area? Or that in 1941 President Roosevelt signed an executive order forcing the internment of Japanese Americans in concentration camps? Did you know that when the “old world” settled the “new world” in the early 1500s, the population here actually declined due to the diseases brought over and the massacres of Native Americans? Back in Michigan, where this photo was taken, native Americans dwelled for many many years. In 1830 an attempt was made to force them from their land, however in our particular home state many tribes held their ground.

Out of many, we are one. By recognizing our past, we can move forward towards a brighter and more inclusive future where we celebrate what makes us different and appreciate those differences as facets that make our country great again.

In May of 1896, Annie, a woman of ill repute, and her companion, Emma von Losch, aka Dutch Em, set out to walk from Atlanta to Rocky Bar over Bald Mountain. An unexpected late-season blizzard started while they were out and didn’t let up for two days. When the women failed to show up in Rocky Bar, a search party was organized. Annie was found crawling through the snow on her hands and knees, incoherent. Dutch Em was found dead, covered by Annie's underclothes. ▫️
.
Annie’s feet were so severely frost bitten that both of her feet were amputated above the ankles. From then on she was known as Peg Leg Annie. The story is that Peg Leg Annie stayed in Rocky Bar and later married and had children. ▫️
.
It was so cool to see Dutch Em’s grave in the Atlanta cemetery! I’d love to know if Peg Leg Annie has a grave in Rocky Bar. ▫️

As Hemingway would attest, it’s tough to beat Sun Valley in the fall.  Snapped this a few years back, with one of the world’s first chairlifts visible on Ruud Mountain (to the left). Hoping for an equally colorful show from Mother Nature this year!

Well, this guy came to see us back down the mountain #baldmountain

Above the treeline, no goats. What gives? #baldmountain

In the end we only regret they things we didn’t do. This beautiful view is from atop Bald Mountain in the Uintas. It’s been on my list for years and today I checked it off. #baldmountain #uintas #uintanationalforest #beautahful #wowutah #utahisrad #getoutside #optoutside #womenwhohike #peakbagger #1of30 #intentionalliving #choosehappiness #somanylakes
