Golly, has it been a year since my last blog post? Uh, I guess so. Only excuse: we've been busy!
After a disappointingly snowless winter and a very dry spring, mid-summer saw the weather turn around and the pasture green up quite nicely. In spite of the "bad" weather, we have enjoyed a flood of wonderful people to the High Mountain Lodge recently.
We also had an amazing summer for hummingbirds. The little guys went through a fifty-pound bag of COSTCO sugar in July and August, alone:
Improvements to the High Mountain Lodge include a pergola on the upper deck, replacement of the deteriorating deck railings, and the renovation of another room at the Lodge.
But that's beside the point. The aspen are turning early this year, and we want to see some friends visit us.
Of course, if the early aspens are any indication, then we're expecting an epic winter. Make your reservations soon.
