Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

This is one of my favorite days in my whole career---there were nine of us on the mountain clearing trails for a range ride when the clouds just settled down on top of the mountain. I know it looks cold and rainy but it wasn't it was just a little eerie. We stopped right next to where this picture was taken and ate our lunch---during lunch the clouds lifted and we could see where we were going again.

I love the fog. The picture looked nice and retro, until I saw the chainsaw.

The chainsaw was for cutting the trees that had fallen over the trail---notice the bar says FARM BOSS---
