While walking The Girl in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, I noticed that the colors of the bear brush1 are changing. This started a couple of days ago. The lodgepole pines, of course, have not changed.
I can feel the difference in the air as well. Over the last couple of weeks, it is not as warm in the afternoons. Fall is coming.
I look forward to it as it is after the summer heat and we move into the cooler months. I love the weather here in the high desert. it suits me. The heat lasts only a few weeks and the remainder of the year has wonderful weather.
I enjoy being outdoors with The Girl. We have fun. Life is good.
1I am sure this brush has a formal name. I recall calling it bear brush from back when I was a kid. I think it will stick.
