Another beautiful day today, warm in the daytime cool at night, perfect.
I'm thinking the next mini-vacation I take won't be much of a vacation, I'll just go out to my property near 11 mile reservoir for a few days and do a little shooting. I haven't been out there for a while so I need to make sure it's still where I left it. I'll probably do that early in October, depending on the weather, and by then it will only be a week or so before I leave Colorado for the Winter.
Back when I lived in Colorado it always seemed to me that the Winters were so long they seemed to go on forever. But now that I spend my winters in nice warm places the Winters seem to fly by just as fast as the Summer. I guess that gets back to the old saying of "time flies when you're having fun", that has never been more true than when I started full timing.
In some spots above timberline the snow lasts all Summer. it's hard to tell in this picture, but this patch of snow is several hundred yards long.
