Another day at the ranger station for me. I continued working on the Recreation Notebook project I yesterday. While I was working I heard that the fire guys were doing a ‘prescribed burn’ (I’ve always heard it called a ‘controlled burn’) in the forest behind the office.
I thought it would be interesting to see what was going on so I walked back there, took a few pictures and talked to a couple of the guys. It was interesting to watch the guys use a drip torch to place the fire just where they wanted it and determine which way the fire would travel according to the wind direction.
I tried another new recipe today. This one was another crock pot recipe and it was for French Onion Soup. After I doctored it a little bit it was pretty tasty. I just have to get the French bread & mozzarella cheese topping squared away and we could have a real winner!
Michael straightened up the house a bit but otherwise took a lazy day. However, he did make some peanut butter cookies (from a mix) after dinner and we enjoyed those for dessert as we relaxed the rest of the evening.
