Our family mountain retreat in Tabiona, Utah was hard to leave this week-end. The weather had been just beautiful… sunny, clear, calm and a perfect temperature. However, the feeling of fall was in the air, even though the leaves were just beginning to change. Since we had a late spring… everything is about two weeks behind.
After family members left, I stayed an extra day…getting caught up on my computer, designing some Halloween giveaways for this blog and watching a few old movies like Gone With The Wind. It was a quiet peaceful time.
Next year I’m going to look into getting wireless high speed internet so I can spend more time enjoying the view from our front windows.
I left for home about 8:30 and headed toward Wolf Creek Pass, which is a lovely drive over the top of the mountains… Over 9000 feet to be exact.
As I was just leaving Hanna, I notice a white strip of white off in the distance. I couldn’t figure what it was for a few minutes. As I got closer, I could tell it was ice.
Yes, ice. Ice had formed on the ground and fence next to a sprinkler irrigation system. It was quite a site to behold against the green and brown of the fields and mountains.
However, it did remind me that winter is closing in soon and I’m not ready for it. Wasn’t I shoveling snow just a couple of days ago?
Oh well… time sure does fly by!
P.S. Do you have a place of peace… somewhere you can go to rejuvenate your spirit?
