Fall’s Cooling Touch—-Monday, September 26, 2016


The summer air has been cooled; then cooled again, from rain storms, which either move gently over us, or violent with thrashing winds and wicked electric storms.

Then down we went to the other side.  The brilliant colors a joy to our eyes

From my world to your heart!

  1. (” I don’t get out much ” ) — I should have recognized owl creek pass area! Due to spending most of last November in Ridgway! but have only been to SilverJack in the 1970’s when I worked for Gunnison County.
