  • It automatically is a given… July brings the beginning of monsoon season to our mountains.

    I realize our weather patterns are changing, and this is the first July 4 celebration here with no rain in the forecast. When our guest ranch was in full swing here we had more than one picnic rained out.

    We have a large cast iron grill, a cooker/smoker made long ago by big boss Jim for just such events and somehow the hamburgers were never as tasty as those cooked on the fireplace down the creek.
