I blinked, and it was Fall
Fall comes quickly to this part of the country. Jackson Hole is at 6200 feet, so generally much cooler in the summer, and VERY cold in the winter. But it seems like fall just suddenly….appeared, this past week. I can’t believe that fall could be so sneaky. It’s probably because we are having such a great summer, and I don’t want it to end. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall. I have always thought of fall as, “The golden time.” But I’m just not ready for it to happen so fast.
Suddenly the leaves and the grass are gold instead of green.
We had a great stormy day on Wednesday, very fall like.
Now the rose hips on the wild roses are giant red globes.
The weeds in the ponds are bright reds, and oranges.
The moose are out and about more. Horray!!
The bison are probably loving the cooler weather, and less tourists around too.
I took this photo outside of Ashton, Idaho when we were coming home from Island Park last week. This area is just wide open rolling fields of wheat, and potatoes. Talk about the bread basket of America. It’s that time of year for the wheat harvest, and the fields were alive with combines, trucks, and of course farmers. I have seen this old grain silo many times, but this time I told the driver we had to stop so I could get photos. I used a texture filter in my editing to give it an old timey look.
Are you ready for fall? Is it sneaking up on you too?
And a quick note about some new posts you’ll be seeing here. If you noticed on yesterdays post, I am working with the travel site Hipmunk. This is a great opportunity, and pretty exciting for me. Every Saturday I will be sharing a post from their new blog, Tailwinds. There are some great travel articles there, and I will be choosing what articles I share here. Hopefully I will be giving you guys some valuable travel info that you can use.
