Busy in Colorado, Sketches, Photos

We are in Walden.  The balloons came up again yesterday morning.  Gene and Rex worked on the hay.  Midday, I went to the camp.  It was lots of fun.  I will post more about that next time.  I tried to post these sketches yesterday but was not successful.  Internet and phones are not great out in the boonies as you know.
Gene's iPhone went out when we were in Cheyenne.  Simply Mac ordered him a replacement and one of Kris' daughters picked it up for us on Friday.  Saved us a trip back to Cheyenne.

I sketched some more of Kris' stuff in the sketchbook with the Micron 02.

For Scavenger Hunt 462, out of order, but you can't be picky.
Number 13, rubber - tires on the tractor and trailer.  Are tires still made of rubber?
Number 14, keepsake - the iron stove on the deck, still used as a chiminea.

Number 11, vegetable - some onions
Number 12, plastic - the glasses and plates on the shelf.  Red and blue.  Do you think Kris and I are related.  She has red and blue, flags, etc, all over.  It is fun to see all the "stuff".

 Rex and Gene working on the hay.

 They stayed busy all day.

Some interesting rock formations on the way between Cheyenne and Walden, on the Wyoming side.

We are seeing if Gene can help Rex more today or if we will be leaving.  I will post about that later, too.  Hope you have a good week.

I like the color sketches. I'm really in to this urban skething.

We baled our pasture earlier this summer and got 130 round bales, which was amazing.

Joan, thanks. I guess the thin, clean air produces the pretty clouds. There was quite a bit so smoke day before yesterday. I couldn't tell at first if the smell was in the air or smoke on my clothes from the campfire. Ha. Sure good eating when you cook in the open.

Bag Blog, good for you on sketching. Good to get the hay in early, too. Lots! Gene had fun helping. He hadn't been on a tractor in years. They finally finished yesterday as the baler broke down the day before.
