OK, I'll admit it, fall is here.

I don't think I'm like most people. People who are anxious to get the snow here. To go skiing, to bundle up, and to ride in the snow. I like the end of summer and I like a really long fall.

If fall comes too quickly, I feel like I have too much to do. Pick the plums, chop and saw the wood, get the yard ready for winter, trim trees back, put the storm windows on, find the Girl's winter jackets, and pull out my own winter clothing. After so much snow last winter, I could use a really long fall this year. I shoveled over 50 hours last year. Good for fitness and great strong abs but I'm not ready to shovel just yet.

When I got up this morning, it was so foggy that I couldn't see the hills behind the ridge. Very pretty but I thought it was going to be sunny this morning. After a cup of coffee and a hike with the Girls, the sun came out. Yeah! Summer for a few hours longer, until tonight. We are supposed to get a rain snow mix tonight.

I've still got a little bit of time to go ride and enjoy the colors on the trails.
