It’s Hot!

Riverton, Utah              High 73 Low 56

With that being said, today actually cooled down, but it is only going to be today and then is forecast to get hot again. We left Pocatello Saturday and drove into what felt like an oven. It was 96 degrees when we got home.

Yesterday we went to Orem to spend some time with Cindy’s Mom. She seems to be doing a little better, but still is very weak. Cindy wants to give Linda a little time off from taking care of their Mom.

The reason we came home is that the Apricots are almost ready to pick with perhaps a week to go.

Some of the branches are on the ground.
Cindy also has a lot of honey dos for me to work on including refinishing the redwood deck around our hot tub. I got a good start on it today.
I found a bunch of pictures of the old buildings in Deer Lodge on the camera and I want to put them on the blog, so here they are. Sorry they are late.
This was the oldest building we saw.

The quilt store we visited. Its in an old bank building.

A neat old train from 1950.

Old state prison.

I read that this old clock still works and has to be wound by hand 3 times a week. It chimes on the hour and half hour.
Tomorrow we have a lot more chores to do.

Thanks for visiting. 


  1. Enjoy your time at home and keep cool, nice pictures too.

  2. We loved touring the old prison. That's a lot apricots.
