Last week we went to Creede for a Branch Party. I couldn't help but notice how beautiful the mountains are right now. It seems that Mother Nature skips us during spring and summer, but saves her best for fall. The aspen are always bright and remind me that we do live in a wonderful part of the country. Today I looked up behind the house and saw the first snow of the year on Bennett Peak. A new reminder that something else is in the air-Winter!!!
