Last year it snowed and this year it rained, but in neither case was the fun dampened. Hanging out with friends during our annual Alta Knitter's Retreat sometimes made for cozy situations, but a good time was had by all and that's why we're there.
Saturday, the skies opened up and the rain never stopped. We watched as clouds moved in to completely surround Alta Lodge in white. Within minutes the clouds moved on up the canyon and our view of the mountains returned. By the next morning the rain had stopped and we were very happy to see it hadn't snowed and that the skies were showing signs of clearing.
Sunday, as Kym and I left the retreat, we took a short drive up the canyon to catch sight of the beautiful town of Alta and the stunning peak of Mt Superior.
We visited Sundance, Cascade Springs, American Fork Canyon and all of it was full of the beauty of fall. The colors of the west are more gold and yellow, than the reds and oranges of the east.
In many places, the color was holding off, the green still in place, but knowing time was waning.
We both wore our Germinate's all weekend, as we needed the added protection from the chill. We are knitters and we know how to stay warm. It was a grand weekend and I feel honored Kym returned to see more of Utah's beauty.
And, now on to ToT!
If you scroll through my books on Goodreads, you'll find few thrillers or suspense novels there, as it's a genre I rarely read. There are two I can put on my list and maybe you'll give me a few more "must reads".
1. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier- This is the first book that came to mind when the subject arrived from Carole.
2. Now You See Me by S.J. Bolton - This is the first in a the Lacey Flint series and it was frighteneing and I was kept guessing right until the end.
