On the day before the official first of Autumn we headed out for a chilly picnic. It was raining in town, but we figured if we got out of the bowl of mountains that surrounds the town it would be a different picture. It truly was. It was chilly, but the sun was out and it seemed as if we had just woke from a long, rainy nap. It was just what we needed, a crisp breath of fresh air.
