(picture from last summer.. winding road past Electric Lake)
Winding canyon roads.
Pine trees, lakes, and wildlife.
Clear Creek is starting the summer season.
That means that Spencer is back to work.
He finished up his college semester, packed up his gear, and his bagpipes.
For the next few weeks, he will be staying in the administrators room.. referred to as the ' Princess Room'.
Queen size bed, wi-fi, attached bathroom. Yep.. the name fits.
In a few weeks, we will be towing the 'Tin Can Cottage' up there for him to live in for the rest of the summer.
He has his own 'Tin Can', so if he gets it ready in time, he'll take that.
weekend.. Spencer was kind enough to help me get the last section of the garage painted.
He and Brooke scraped the loose paint off and sanded it.
made him change into his "Huckleberry Finn" painting clothes, and he and Brooke got the painting done.
We still need to replace and trim out the window.
Still... so much better than it was.
Off to the left, you can see the granary.
We are putting a door in the granary, and a porch on that side.
The area between the granary and garage will become a beautiful courtyard.
little town and a big lake about 1/2 mile from the school district camp.
Scofield town, and Scofield Reservoir.

It happened in the town of Scofield.
some fishing in at Scofield reservoir this summer.
Dinner time for this eagle.
As bald eagles do not get their white head feathers until they are at least five years old, I'm not certain if this was a bald eagle or a golden eagle.
Off he flew.
Waiting patiently until the intruders are gone.
Spencer LOVES working at the summer camp.
He cuts down trees, keeps the generator, and water tanks going.
Mows and trims the lawns.
Keeps the rope course maintained, and fire pits cleaned and stocked for night time bon-fires.
What ever the camp needs.. he does.
We love the ride to and from camp, through the mountains,
and past the lakes.
The most wonderful commute ever.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I am so grateful that Spencer has his summer job. So grateful that the school district budgeted the funds to retain him.
~I'm grateful for church on Sunday, and for fast and testimony meeting.
It's always so up-lifting to hear others testimonies, and hear their gratitude for the blessings in their live.
~I'm grateful that we were able to get so many things accomplished over the weekend.
Feels more and more like our 'Forever Home'.
