Summer Is Going, Going, Gone!

Wow! And they say time flies when you're having fun. Well, this summer must have been a LOT of fun because time seems to have passed at the speed of light. Wasn't it just yesterday we were headed into our summer season? Today I find myself nearing the end.

It has been a GREAT season. We've made lots of new friends, had great visits with some old ones, and look forward to many returns next year. But, fall is quickly approaching - the signs are all around.

The last three nights the mercury has dropped below freezing - one night well below. The trees are getting serious about putting on their fall foliage. The bushes on the hillsides are rushing to get dressed first. The birds are looking for warmer lodging, and life is taking that turn to the quieter days of winter.

I must admit, I'm ready. It has been a long (sometimes hard) summer. We were blessed with almost more business than we could handle. In fact, we've come to the conclusion even with our wonderful help from New Zealand, we were short staffed again this summer. So. . .next summer I suspect we'll be looking for three pairs of hands to help out instead of two.

However, as we look to enjoy a bit more down time - time enjoying this wonderful place we call home - I wish you all a wonderful fall and winter. And, if you're in the West Yellowstone / Island Park / Centennial Valley area - give us a call. We always enjoy a visit from our friends.
