It is a beautiful first snow. The hue colors of Fall have been replaced with pure white airy flakes, making the landscape innocent and clean again. Smell of the first snow heightens my senses. Memories abound of the holidays to come...caring, sharing, joyous gatherings.
I know you will not last long, Welcome first snow, lay low, stay awhile.

Hiking to Hecula Castle
2 mile ride down the Austin Trail on ATV's, plus a 1 1/2 mile walk on an old wagon trail, we are able to view the magnificent Hecula Castle rock formation. Cool sunny weather and great friends was the perfect combination for today's hike.

Fall Vacation Cut ShortWith the prediction of more snow on the way we decided to leave the mountain earlier than planned. Our short trip has created many memories. Chili feed with great friends, morning coffee clutches, mountain hiking, cozy wood stove fires, beautiful Fall landscapes and "The First Snow of the Season" , we are blessed...
