I noticed someone left the smoking sign on...

Then this morning when I got up there was long underwear everywhere. I checked my calendar and it says August. That can't be right. I think it's gotten upsidedown again.

44 degrees F at my house this morning

First time in 2 months the air wasn't just stale and dusty, it was beautiful!

Of course, I could see the smoke from the fires in Lincoln and Phillipsburg coming over the mountains from the north and west, but for one glorious moment, it felt like fall, and the dead dry, dusty heat was gone.

At 5:30 this morning, it was 83 with a 75 dew point! I want to move to Montana! Or WY..... I live about 20 miles north of the Florida Keys. I am a porch lurker for several years now. I had a Great Aunt & Uncle who homesteaded in the Powell, Wyoming area in the early 1900's. I love the West, but have seldom visited. My good job (~ low pay, though) kept me in south Florida for 41+ years but now I am retired..... and free to roam the country.

C'mon out! Late summer / autumn is usually great! Cool in the morning, warm and sunny in the afternoon and no humidity!

Nothing beats a fine October morning with a little touch of frost on the grass, the sky is unbelievably clear as the stars go out one by one and you can watch the cloak of night travel west as the sun comes up and the light touches the land and sets a billion diamonds to glinting.

The mountains may be 20 miles away, but the air is so clear it looks like you can reach out and grab them. The upper reaches draped in delicate snowcap, the deep blues of the pine and fir forests in the midrange blending to a myriad of shimmering yellow in the aspen foothills and the blackthorn blazes in reds and oranges in the draws look almost like a living flame when the early morning light touches them.

As the morning goes on it warms to usually in the 60s, just perfect for anything you want to without the oppressive heat and dust of summer beating you down.

A fall trip is best with the tourists gone all services are available, you can drive without any traffic, and places like Yellowstone are fabulous with the elk rut with bulls bugling and the bears are super active trying to put on winter fat so you have a better chance of seeing them.
Wildlife is everywhere outside the park too, just drive around and you'll see deer and antelope all over the place.
I think you'd really enjoy it.

You don't have to lurk, you can always join in.

Sometimes I wish that I was a bison. Theme music is from Dancing With Wolves....(one of my favs.)
