Times are changing here in the mountains as the off season is ushered in. A subtle message from Mother Nature that summer has gone, autumn is imminent and Christmas is just around the corner. This time of year always makes me go through different moods, from disappointment to anticipation. How about you?
September is always a reminder that summer is gone. Gone?? Has summer even begun yet?
No matter if fall has already officially started, now is the time to get outside and take a last dip in a beautiful mountain lake.
Take advantage of the last warm days and get out. All around the mountains there are thousands of trees, that all turn the prettiest yellows, golds and oranges.
I simply love the noise of the leaves crushing beneath my feet.
Also, the hikes, that you think you can’t do because it’s not summer, are the prettiest they will ever be: Sunrise Walks in the fall mean, you can linger in bed longer, as the sun rises later. Here comes the sun!
Who doesn’t need a new beanie?
And then there is that day with the first snow of the season on the high peaks!
Seeing white on the mountains sets in motion the notion that winter is just around the corner. Do you start counting down the days to the start of ski season?
