Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Today is the first day of fall---my favorite time of year---bar none. The mornings are cool---the days are quite warm and the evenings are great. I love fall.

Yesterday we took a ride over Cedar Mountain to look at the colors---there are very limited colors on Cedar Mountain---because---it hasn't frozen hard enough yet to color up the aspen.

It was a good trip anyway because Inklings got to see her mom and dad and I got to see my mom. Not for very long but at least we got to see them. We haven't made that run since July so it was really good to get there.

This past week I got to see all of my kids except Dr. Psycho---would have seen him too but he wasn't home when I went up and I came back really early in the day so didn't stop. Sorry Bud but I didn't have a clue what was for sure up until Monday morning. I had a good trip and saw a lot of folks.

There were a lot of red leaves on the road that goes to the 'C' overlook above Cedar City, but you couldn't really see much from the highway. But, the drive from Cedar Breaks to Panguitch Lake had a LOT of yellow leaves along the side of the road. It was pretty.

Oh, I'm jealous! I got to come last year in October when Twist and I took Mom and Dad home from the wedding. It was so pretty!

I went up to Silver Lake with the two little ones was pretty. I wish it had rained in the morning so the colors were more vibrant, but they were still nice.
