Summer In The Mountains

 While other places in the country are sweltering in the heat with triple digit temperatures we are enjoying nice cool weather. In fact only 6 degrees above freezing. The trees pictured have frost on them.
 This weather makes for good sleeping weather as we curl up in the fetal position under the blankets and the dogs are all curled up with their noses in their tails. This is the very reason we cut and have on hand the 9-12 cords of firewood as it won't be long before we need a fire in the wood stove 24/7.
We usually start to build a fire to warm the house up around September some time and stop in late May which is nine months duration. It won't be long now before the leaves start to change on the aspen trees.

When do the aspens usually turn there? We're thinking about driving out there from Missouri to see that.

Its hard to tell exactly David: Some years they change early and some later and some they only change for a couple weeks. Best I can tell you is mid Sept is the earliest but watch the blog and when they start to change I'll post photos. Then you will have 2-3 weeks before they are all gone. I'll post photos on this blog when they start to change.
