Perhaps not quite as good as it was long ago, but still, good. I am blessed because I can walk down in the evening and catch a nice trout on one of my flies. There is an old cartoon posted in the house that shows a fisherman standing before St Peter. The caption says ” Wait, I’m a trout fisherman. I was supposed to go to Montana”.
Well, the decision to move back here about 20 years ago was a good one. We are so glad that we did that. The point of your latest post really finds a home here. Just those simple little observations are so important and absorbing. They keep us in touch with the earth.
Yes, we have had three days with some rain, although to total has only been about a half inch. I heard yesterday that the smoke from the fires is still bad south of here, but the current weather should blow a lot of it out of there and the rain has helped a lot with the remaining fires. The weather forecast now calls for some snow Monday night down to 2500 feet which is about valley level and the low will be 25. That will really help with the last of the fires.
We have few native maples here and they seem to be about half way through their color change. The Aspen have mostly turned at least at low elevations and the larch are beginning to show up really well. It is not a normal fall color season at all.
We love it here for the beauty and the stillness. It is so much different from life in or near the cities. Tomorrow I must visit the nearest city and that will be about 180 miles round trip, the return being the best part.
Yay! Fall has arrived in your neck of the woods. Now we’ll be treated with some gorgeous photos from you! 🙂 Our leaves are peaking and starting to drop already, but it’s been a prettier fall than I first thought it would be. I just haven’t had much time to get out an capture some pictures of it. Looking forward to yours.
The leaves are turning quickly now and I haven’t been out as much as I would have liked to yet. I will be out this weekend but it is supposed to be a rainy weekend. There is always something of beauty in the forests though in all weather.
I think it is the sky at that particular moment. It looks like a spring sky, not a fall or winter one. I had rained not long before but the dark clouds had been swept off to the north to drop snow on the high country there.
