The budget is looking good. Staying put in the Burro Bridge Campground is healthy, both for finances and physical health. Long walks, not much driving, and nowhere to spend money. I spent the entertainment funds on a great lunch (cod and home made chips) and an indoor/outdoor thermometer. Most mornings, according to the new thermometer, are 38 degrees. Yes. It is cold at this altitude.

I was treated to a wonderful, freshly caught, still cold from the West Dolores, trout. These campers, in Burro Bridge, are friendly and generous. Please note that the fish was beautifully cleaned before presented to me for dinner!
A little bit of evoo and salt in a hot cast iron pan.
It was delicious. I even sucked the bones. I have alerted the new campers that trout is the best way to get on my good side!
I have spent the last few days taking pictures and looking up flowers. The hills and mountains and creek beds are too full to show all of them, but here are a few:
The last image is of a plant that no Forest Ranger, camper or camp host can identify. They have all called it a weed. Weeds have names too, don’t they? The plant goes up to 6′ and seems to be common in this area. Help!
