The Last of Summer

Summer is my favorite season. In fact, I can not imagine why anyone would prefer any other season. In Utah, Winter is far too cold. Spring is only a little better than Winter. And Fall just means Winter will be here soon.

Before the summer is completely gone, here are a few photos from the past few weeks.

Suzy& Casey's new place - it's near his work and gives them a lot more space.

Claire even has room for her little swimming pool.

Quinn was not really interested in swimming.

The next weekend was the annual Yellowstone trip. The weather was great and the animals were very cooperative.
Warning: These photos may be disturbing to some viewers.

Buffalo - okay, a bison.

Elk - from the wrong end.

Bear warning!!

We saw not just one grizzly bear....

but here's another grizzly bear. This one is guarding a half eaten elk. Not only was he here in the evening, but the next morning, he was in exactly the same place. Great view from across the river.

Hiking the Yellowstone is always amazing!

How I hate to see the summer go.....

Coming next on this blog.... Labor Day in Tucson.

Summer is the time to have fun and make memories. You got such great pictures at Yellowstone. Suzy's kids are so cute. You have to admit there are a lot of beautiful fall days. I am hoping for a LONG fall this year.
