I was invited yesterday to do a day ride up in the Black Range with a couple of friends. Pat and Fred and I took a nice ride up to the Emory Pass overlook and it was the first time I had seen the burn from the Silver fire and how extensively it had affected one of the most scenic rides in southern New Mexico.
It was pretty stunning to say the least. I took a pic from the overlook and it is of an area that was completely treed and green a month ago....
And here are a couple of the view from Truth or Consequences while the fire was raging.
For those who aren't aware, this was a fire in Kit's forest and what has occupied her dispatch center for the last few weeks....it is effectively out now with the advent of the monsoonal rains...thankfully.

- well, I am a 70 year old married man with a couple of sons and 4 grand kids and am currently wending my way around the planet in any way that I find interests me. I am a retired mechanic, certified motorcycle nut, ride a sidecar rig and practice living in the moment. I am a 31 year friend of Bill and Bob and have lived a life beyond my wildest dreams.
