Heading east across the high plains of Colorado today. I think this must be one of the loneliest places on earth. And yet spectacular, in a stark, wild way. Antelope, pheasants, doves, and hawks and bright purple flowers along the roadside. Nothing but emptiness beneath the tall, billowing clouds. Thinking of how out here the sky can be your enemy--tornadoes swooping down in an instant, leveling all in their path. Thinking of the whirling demons up there, and the angels...
Was snowed in west of the Continental Divide on Saturday, then heavy snow and 23 degrees over Wolf Creek Pass on Sunday. Today, back in springtime. Tonight in Nebraska.
Stay tuned...
