Summer is Over in the High Country

The Aspen leaves are starting to turn in the Breckenridge area. Six weeks from now we could be skiing.

Happy to say that here on the Western Slope we have another 3 weeks of summer until the aspens start to turn in the mountains. But I agree, by the end of Oct., Wolf Creek should be open.

Our Boulder area cottonwoods are showing some yellow. But maybe that's because it was in the upper 90s today, and they're stressed?

Well, our high country is your low country, but Mt. Washington, NH, had snow this weekend. And here on Nantucket, we had to turn the heat on in the dining room to warm it up for our dinner party.

Today, it is hot (for us), breezy (25 knots) and muggy (90% humidity) with 2" of rain expected.

Don't hurry, Winter!
I always hope for a nice Fall season, with colorful aspen trees and without early freezes in town.

I just rode pass a huge oak tree in the city and all of its leaves have a yellowish cast to them.

A friend drove Hoosier Pass a couple of days ago and said it was in full color.

Rain in Boulder county, snowing in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Darn. Had hoped for a long, slow fall here, but not feeling that is going to happen.

I'm with ya, sylvia. Fall is too short!

It's snowing in Montana, so that's great for those fires.

No longer summer in southeast Washington either. Darn. Usually Indian summer through mid October, but there's a definite chill. No more smoke though, very happy about that!
