It feels like we are in store for another cool, crisp "fall" day. The high yesterday was only 60º with a low of 43º. The sky is blue and the clouds are resting in the valley below. It is a great day for a hike. We want to thank our pal Larry for hiking up a bushel of peaches. In less than 24 hours, the crew has polished off over 2/3 of them. Someone might have mistaken us for a pack of hyenas feasting on a carcass. They were delicious and much appreciated. This morning, I sat at the picnic table and looked out over the valley while eating that fantastic peach. I had a brief moment of quiet reflection and appreciation for the many years I have been allowed to call this mountain home.
