I went for a drive into the Rockies with a couple of friends on the autumn equinox. The air was hazy with the smoke of wildfires from other western states, and was so thick that at times it was difficult to see the peaks. At the base of Independence Pass, we caught a person canoing out on one of the Twin Lakes. Between mudflats, you can see how low the water is. If we don’t have a wet winter, with a good spring run-off, I worry about next summer.
