By late November many of the leaves have fallen from the hardwood trees. On cold mornings they crunch under my feet.
The little gullies on the sides of canyons now have some running water due to the increasing rainfall. On sunny days the cold east winds are gusting on the exposed ridge tops. Numerous limbs are beginning to fall from the trees along the trails.
It’s a wonderful time to celebrate Thanksgiving Day.
