Logging continues and Bianca cools off in the creek

Our fire log cutter, Mike, cut some of the old logs I thought might make good firewood. He gave up, saying the wood was punky (too rotten to be good firewood). Mike will come back after fire season and cut some of the newly fallen trees left behind from this year’s logging.
