Well Summer is officially OVER! Just 2 weeks ago we had 100 degree temperatures, and in the matter of 48 hours had snow flying in the mountains. Now, we have cooler temperatures in the forecast. Which is really starting to make me reconsider the possibility of overnight camping in the next few days . But, hopefully we can hopefully get out and enjoy Fall, before it is too late. With the leaves changing and the cool crisp air, it is a perfect time to get outdoors and sneak in another camping trip before winter takes hold.
