Astonishingly, sunshine has continued to stick around well into October, making for a truly glorious fall. I’ll take the cooler days and vibrant foliage of fall over the smoke and heat of summer any day! Over the weekend, Andy and I were roped into something neither of us were much looking forward to - family photos. Thankfully we didn’t have to get up too early, since my parents cabin isn’t terribly far away. Somehow, even though it’s October, we were all surprised by the chilly weather and spent a good part of the morning shivering between poses. As uncomfortable as the cold was, the frost and ice sparkled in the early morning light, and eventually the sun climbed high enough to reach the valley and provide some much needed warmth. Even if I had to be in front of the camera instead of behind it, it’s hard to beat a fall morning in the mountains. By the time we’d finished photos, it was early afternoon - perfect timing for Andy and I to stop at the pass for lunch and beers at Dru Bru! Since we’d both had exhausting weeks, Andy and I decided to take it easy Sunday by spending the day binge (re)watching Game of Thrones while keeping the apartment warm with a cozy fire. All around, not a bad way to spend a fall weekend!
