Carbondale post-burn holiday fun.

Kate and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving day. She talked me into riding our bikes to see the results from last week’s historic first prescribed burn inside Carbondale’s city limits. She’s on the board of Green Earth, a land trust that manages the property and organized the burn. Kate’s posted pictures here.

Here’s my photo of a singed rattlesnake-master seed head.

The weather was beautiful and we extended our ride and got hungry. We ended up at the Huck’s south of campus. An ungly place from the outside, but not a bad stop at all on a day when everything else’s closed and you haven’t had a donut in six months.
