I've been craving fall-ish weather like this. 52 degrees!!! Crazy. The next few days it is supposed to be in the 70's, which is a huge respite from the 98 degrees we experienced last week! Welcome September!!! Goodbye Dog-Days of Summer! Most people are sad to see the Summer go, with the huge snow storms that lingered on into June this year. But not me.
Yesterday Hunky Husband and I went for a 6 mile hike/jog with Duvi through a beautiful dense forest into a clearing that was doggy heaven. It was even called "dog lake". When we arrived, dogs were running around and wailing through the water, barking and playing. It was a happy sight, to see so many sweet beasts having the times of their lives. Duvick was no exception. I loved seeing him have so much fun. We all were having fun. Doons was scoping out ski lines that he wanted to explore in the backcountry this winter. And we spotted the largest Aspen grove we have ever seen in Utah and made a mental note to return in the next few weeks to watch it turn golden.
I love the mountains. Such beauty and adventure to behold at every season. A winter wonderland becomes a doggy heaven in the summer. The well worn trail that we enjoyed yesterday will be completely lost beneath snow in a the winter months and we will have to find our own way to the top, but not before we enjoy a few weekends with crisp cool walks under golden aspens.
I'm going to have to go pull my house slippers out of storage...
