Bright gold colors radiate everywhere.The aspen, birch and maple trees are stunning.
Migrating yellow rump warblers climb over our house looking for bugs, white-throated sparrows dig in the falling leaves. Groups of cedar wax-wing and robins take a rest from their migration to look for food.
Our presence surprises the fox and coyotes. It is unusual to never see deer.
A few bee balm, asters, and hyssop are still blooming, but the colorful trees absorb the eyes attention. The beautiful days are sunny and cool and you wish for them to last forever.
