Over the weekend we visited Dugout Gulch in Wyoming again for another hike while our warm, summery days continued into September. Pieter found acorns and rose hips and Papa found some more special plants to collect. I just enjoyed being outside, seeing the clear blue sky and the clean air. That is one nice part about living in such a rural place - the air pollution is non-existence (except for an occasional forest fire).
Our warm weather came to a sharp halt this week with 50 degrees and rain. That is also welcome, as it then is fun to bake bread and make soup again. But, it looks like we might get some more warmth this weekend, which all my green heirloom tomatoes desperately need!
