Fall color

Wenesday evening, Thursday morning the temperatures cooled after a long summer of heat.  Later on Thursday, I noticed that the leaves on the trees further up the mountain have changed.  Some of the color may be due to the lack of rain,  but many of the higher altitude Maples have Fall color.

A Monarch Returns

Over the last few weeks, I have seen flashes of orange and black butterflies.  Friday in South Ogden, I enjoyed watch a Monarch butterfly visit the flowers in the garden  I was visiting.  It has been quite a while since Monarchs have been seen in Ogden during the summer.  Welcome back!  The ecological programs to save these butterflies must be working.  Let's keep them going.

Summer rain finally came to Ogden Canyon.  Yesterday, we had off and on showers with some thunder.
