Good-bye, Summer

Summer is officially over for us,
regardless of what the calendar says.  

We've just come back from a wonderful
mini-vacation to Breckenridge, Colorado.

We enjoyed a few light rains but also some
sun--high temps in the 60's.

Perfect for putting you into a fall mood.
(Very hard to come home to hot temps--yuck!  Cooling off after today tho.)

The aspens--always my favorite tree. 

It was a little early for them to be golden
but I got to see a few here and there.

Every year or so, we need to get our
Mountain-Fix, as I like to call it.

We took one 6+ mi rigorous hike...

...enjoying so much of nature. 

On the second day, we took in
a much simpler one (3 mi) but absolutely
the prettiest one we've been on yet.

Not sure if you can see the huge waterfall 
in the center there, but at this distance 
we could already hear its roar.

The trees blocked the view when we got closer.

Here is the bottom pouring out....

...into this lake.

I'm making a note to hit this hike again but
in the late spring when the water will be at
it's max. 

And now it's time to switch gears.

There is autumn to celebrate.

Harvest to reap.

Holidays for which to prepare.

See you in the sewing room!

Fabulous scenery. And the temps sound so inviting. It's 92 here today, yet a front should move thru over the weekend.
