I went to Mazama again for Labor Day weekend. Boo and Evan went on Thursday with their dogs and Brent picked up Nikki and me Friday evening. Some rock climbers Boo knew were also staying at the cabin while shooting some pictures for a climbing magazine. Saturday was a nice day, with only a hint of smoke in the air, although more haze shows up in these photos. Boo and I hiked to Cutthroat Lake with Nikki and Chamix.
Sunday was a lot smokier. We went to a play at the Merc Playhouse in Twisp called The Drawer Boy. It was well done and very moving. Monday Brent decided to cut down a dead tree to use for the corner poles in a new shed. When the army came through and did fire prep work around the cabin, they threw all the firewood out away from the house. It should be stored some distance away, so a woodshed is needed. Brent and Evan cut the tree into 4 lengths and I peeled the bark off using a peeler. It was pretty easy in this case; because the tree had been dead awhile, most of the bark came off in big chunks.
