Day 189: No Words

Day 189 of the Nowhere To Be Project brought even more lovely pre-autumn color to my town. Vail is bursting with color and its beauty speaks for itself. That’s all!

Day 179: Fall is Giving Summer the Boot in Vail

The first hint of fall color on the mountain. Spotted through my car’s window!

Today, day 179 of the Nowhere To Be Project, brought me cooler air and my first official pumpkin sighting of the season. Unlike nearly everywhere else in the United States, the temperatures in the Vail Valley hovered in the mid 60s today. Despite the rampant Labor Day celebrations in town, the cooler air helped to put everyone in sweater-mode. As I drove through the mountains, spotting the first tinge of yellow on the leaves of the Aspen trees, I was inspired to plan a few trips. The goal for my fall travel is singular, to witness the awe-inspiring colors of mother nature as she shuts the door on summer. Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year and even though it has not officially started, its hypnotic lure is beckoning as witnessed in the yummy vegan Pumpkin Cakies with Brown Sugar Mascarpone Frosting that I created this afternoon (recipe to follow tomorrow).
