Wandering through the golden days of autumn

IT’S FALL. I know this not by the calendar but by a certain blue color of the sky and the spray of white on the higher peaks. A select few branches of some aspen trees have begun to turn, and the first cold front has blown through, taking most of the bugs and summer with it.

I also know it’s fall by the almost primal instinct to start gathering necessary commodities. Firewood and hay are the two biggies. Wild meat for the freezer is another.
