Haze from now four fires filters through the rising sun and across the Gros Ventre River.  The air smells of wood smoke and it even burns the eyes.  And yet is even this seemingly destructive quality of nature there is beauty

Our weather is quite warm for this time of year hitting near record breaking numbers.  Wyoming has recorded records at a number of locations though the mid 70's here in the high country is not too bad.  Our two fires to the NW and NE are still going putting out a lot of smoke in the afternoons when they really flair up.   Hunters are streaming into our area with a lot of horses and camps being put up in the back country.  Trees are really beginning to change colors now.  Fall is upon us.

Wild Geraniums are showing off their colors on forest floors

The rising sun casts a golden light onto the waters of Horse Creek still in the shadow of the mountains above.  A heavy frost covers willows and grasses.

The Mule Deer have now all asumed their winter coats.  Even the Fawns have lost spots and look like a smaller version of their mothers.

Fall is upon us.  Yesterday morning a little front came through that dropped the tempertures pretty well.  It was 27 degrees this morning.  No moisture but fog was rising as the sun also made its appearance.
