I saw Carrie off at nine this morning. It looks like a great program. (The director, upon her arrival said “Want a $1000 Americorps scholarship? Just fill this out…” That was the last I saw of her.

We had breakfast at a Swiss Bakery in downtown Durango. The food was mediocre and the coffee weak, but they did get the concept right on a mocha: no sugar!

Then a short hike near Andrews Lake, then drove home again. I made it short, sicne I’m sick with a cold. It was beautiful, though.

We had a heavy frost two nights ago, and a light one this morning. The tomatoes didn’t make it, though they are always a long shot anyway. The rest of the garden’s okay, but I’m sure it won’t last long. Oh, well.
