    Well, I never dreamed I’d be reviewing a just-published book about Mora County and the somewhat historic events that happened here and in Alaska a few decades ago.
    “Pilgrim’s Wilderness: A true story of faith and madness on the Alaskan Frontier,” has just been published by Crown Press, and is written by Tom Kizzia, a longtime reporter for the Alaskan Newspaper, the Anchorage Daily News.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Longtime friends pay a visit to Camp Davis

    It can’t get any better than this! That is just one of the remarks I’ve heard about our July weather here. I have measured 12.19 inches of rain in July. That might be a record for July here. The transformation from desert to lush, green and blooming mountains is unbelievable.
    Long-time friends from Dallas have just left after a fun week’s visit with me. David was a camper at Camp Davis when he was a kid, and his parents stayed with us that last week of camp when they came to pick him up.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: The transformation from desert to jungle

    Just a month ago there was no such thing as a troublesome weed on this ranch. I honestly thought any kind of plant from grass to any kind of weed was dry and dead. It is absolutely amazing just what rain can do.

    The transformation from desert to jungle has not gone unnoticed and some new and so much safer herbicides are being developed all of the time. Our most invasive weed is thistle, and there are more than one species growing here.

    The fiesta is a happy time to be in the great town of Mora.
