It doesn’t get much better than this!


The hills are ablaze with color.

The early color seekers were disappointed to find hill and valley still green and flowers still blooming is full color.  The warm summer weather seemed intent on continuing indefinitely.  But fall has finally arrived and the hills are ablaze with color and the rustle of wind blown leaves. We have had a dusting of snow upon mountain tops and breezes suggesting that winter will soon follow.
