Fall in the Air

The nippiness of fall is definitely in the air in our little town. We are at an elevation of 6,700 feet, which means that cooler temperatures come earlier and stay later than lower areas only a couple hundred miles away.

The trees here are already starting to shed their leaves, and the winds are whipping those leaves over the yards and down the streets of town. This means that there is "crunchiness" underfoot, and it would not surprise anyone if we woke up to a blanket of snow in the not-too-distant future.

Each season tends to bring its own beauty, and this one is no exception. We are having a grand time watching the seasons change. I hope that you are enjoying whatever season and weather you are facing.
