Thanks Marie for today's photos

Thanksgiving Gift

I don't like most things with social media, but sometimes it really works for stolen item recovery. You may recall seeing a posting recently of a precious stained glass whose creator had passed on, and had great sentimental value to the owner.

A photo was spread far and wide, and when a woman saw it for sale, she bought it, and passed it through two people to get it to the rightful owner. A special Thanksgiving gift .

Missing a ladder?

An aluminum ladder was found in the vicinity of Porcupine and  Whiskey Jack roads - beneath a window, and may have been used to gain entry to a cabin. If you are missing a ladder, please contact me at unbaldy@gmail.com  .

(no, it is not the Webster ladder)

Apple Wood

I saw this on Marketplace this morning, and picked up a nice load of apple wood - just above level in the box for $100. Nice guy - these are "rejects" from a commercial buyer who complained they were too wet - he must have been there in the rain, because it is good seasoned dry wood.

We all had them back in the day.........

Mine went to the Mayor of Camp McKinney


Side story - they went through a police road block at the junction, but were waved through.

No cause for alarm - edge of burned slash pile flared up with some wind

3:00pm update - fire was in the edge of a burn pile from 2 weeks ago - duff and sawdust as well as other ends from the original file. Mountain staff action is complete - photos sent to wildfire specialist - no cause for concern, fire will continue to be monitored.

The smoke is coming our way right now, but before I went smoke chasing, Matt and Ariel were already working on it, and Marliese has joined them. I started to walk in, but wasn't wearing the right boots. The photo from a distance is a little deceiving - the fire is in the cleared area, but the smoke is blowing into the trees. There is a plan in place to reduce intensity, and monitor the spot in the coming days.


November 3, 2010 version of Swan


Swan is a Baldy lifer, but we won't have his skill set on the team this year - better paying job down the road. He'll be riding on his days off for sure, and we'll see that charming smile in the pow.
