First Fire of the Season

Today we built our first fire of the season. In order to build a fire, we had to first collect some firewood. We went up to the ski basin and scavenged some dry, fallen aspen and pine with our new flea market handsaws. This turned out to be annoying, and probably not worth the effort. But the aspens are beautiful this time of year, and we had fun driving deep into the forest to collect our tiny bounty.

Does Santa Fe have wood shredding setup with their garbage collection? We often cruise the aisle ways and find lots of cut down trees. A cordless handsaw is invaluable for quickly cutting up and taking home a cut down mesquite.
