The Beauty of Autumn

|

It arrived late last week….at least the calendar says so! In Grand Teton National Park, the snow showed up early (at elevation) but the leaves are taking their sweet time when it comes to putting on their annual autumnal “show.” Some of the hillsides are finally beginning to turn yellow; smaller shrubs are becoming colorful … Continued

Uncle Sam Day

|

On the “odd holidays and observances” list, I found an interesting one for September 13th: Uncle Sam Day. Who knew?
