The coneflowers have gone to seed and there are only a few specks of color left on the mountain top. After yesterday's inch of rainfall, the temperatures are a little cooler. The high yesterday was 66º with a low of 40º. We are currently socked in with a hint of sunshine every now and then. I did notice a little bit of color on the leaves when I hiked up on Wednesday. There is a familiar chill in the air that whispers autumn.
