There’s nothing like September in the Rockies, especially if you’re lucky enough to live here in your own beautiful Rocky Mountain cabin. Cooler air is moving in and the Aspens are beginning cloak themselves in their glorious golden fall color. It’s a time for gathering with family and friends and enjoying life in one of the nation’s most ruggedly beautiful regions.
The Great Outdoors
September is the perfect time to enjoy the end of season wildflowers and grasses in your backyard, to gather around the fire pit in the evenings after supper and savor summer’s last days and usher in the fall weather.
Night is falling a little earlier these days, signaling the coming of fall and the time to start thinking aboutgearing up for the long winter ahead. Although a part of us hates to see the summer go, another part welcomes the change of seasons and the natural sights and traditions that accompany fall in the mountains.
September is a great time to savor the last outdoor family meals and barbecues, and the last of the fresh fruits and veggies of the season. As the month that officially ends summer and welcomes fall, it’s a time of transitions, of endings and new beginnings alike. A truly special month to feel thankful for the beauty of nature and the blessings of family, and to look forward to back-to-school days, the crispness of fall, and the snowy winter that’s not far behind. There’s nothing quite like September in the Rockies!
