This pat weekend was lovely. Afternoon temperatures reaching the mid 60’s and nighttime temperatures down to freezing. The cold nights and humidity brought frost to everything in the morning. Saturday morning included some fog where I could not see across the pond.
A restlessness on Sunday afternoon beckoned me to drive the 5 miles to the Environmental Learning Center and walk the outer loop with my camera and journal. Very few people were out so the quiet in nature was healing and soothing. Clear blue skies and the sound of rustling cottonwood leaves along with the calls of blue jays was all the music I needed. A couple of whitetail deer kept an eye on me as I walked along the trail near the Poudre River.
We also had a days of high winds so a lot of trees have become barren and naked with the loss of their leaves. However we do have a few lingering fall colors. The winds also clear up the smog and gives us these Bluer skies. Enjoy the rest of your week.
