It's always interesting to observe the changes that take place from month to month on the mountain. The August mountain still exhibits much green, but the golds and browns of dried grasses now grace meadow and hillside. Recent rains have revived green of leaf and stem. Wildflowers can still be found, from vibrant red Indian Paintbrush to the purples of thistle and the golds of mullen. Refreshing breezes and gentle coolness of the air made it the perfect place for a walk along a trail that wounds through the meadow to forest. Serenity. Peace. Quiet. Gentleness.
