Fall has always been my favorite time of year. I love when the first dips in temperature comes, turning the leaves brilliant reds, orange and yellows. The crisp north winds hits your face, hinting at winter which waits patiently just around the corner. When we’re out for a walk and see the animals hurry about getting their last stores in before snowfall- it is a great reminder to start doing so for ourselves. This is the time of year we start collecting firewood, preserving food, sippin’ hot chocolate- and the last of the years bonfires slowly pass us by.
Our first fall in North Idaho is proving to be nothing short of spectacular. We have already discovered a few new fall favorites. The ice cold mountain creeks fill to the brim with the first fall rains- where kokanee salmon were spawning within’ them just a few short weeks ago. The tamarack trees turn to beautiful Autumn gold among the evergreen hillsides- and you can’t help but smile at how they pop up more and more as the season progresses. So thankful to God for allowing us to live here.
