The first crisp days of autumn have arrived here in Colorado. The days are getting shorter at an alarming rate, and the sunsets are coming earlier and earlier with each passing day.
While skittering down steep trails, flashes of yellow shout out from the scattered aspens within the pine forests above town. Afternoon thunderstorms are becoming less frequent, but now long sleeves are usually needed during my morning commute. But most troubling was the appearance of fresh snow on the high peaks last week. Winter is no longer months away.
Get out and enjoy the ever-shortening days!
