Short, stirring By The Lake captures summer’s last breaths

Autumn is here, full-tilt. I had to get into the sun yesterday to warm my hands after only a few minutes on the cold, shaded-by-morning sandstone. Aspens are yellow and A-Basin is already open.

The 140,000 views certainly proves I’m not new to this video. Well that, and the advertising, coupon codes and fact I found it on’s Hot Clicks blog.

Sure, they might be worried a bit about giardia and other unseen infections that thrive in the corridors of urban run-off, but that never stopped me from jumping in mud puddles or ramping my Team Murray into sewer back-ups.
