Here’s a synopsis of August goings-on in the garden and the mountains. The days are still long, hot and sunny, but are now turning a little shorter and a little less hot. We still have plenty of sun. The drought continues and we are conserving water as best we can. Everyone’s hoping for a wetter fall and winter.
The dry weather has been good for walking in the mountains, though—from a day hike from South Lake with Chris and Bean to local favorite Green Lake, right in our backyard, to another local 20 mile overnight weekend loop out of North Lake: over Piute Pass and into Humphreys Basin, and then up and over Packsaddle Pass and Lamarck Col before heading back down. Such a treat that these places are less than an hour’s drive from home!
