Idaho Harvest Time

It's "Spud Week" here in Driggs, Idaho. In layman terms, this means harvest time; and, in decades-old tradition, public schools close for a week so students can help with the harvest work.  Barley and potatoes are the main crops, so this also leads to the moniker "Spud Break." 

Summer-like weather is continuing, making for ideal harvest conditions.  It's crazy, but for the last several years we get nicer weather in September than we do in June.  No complaints!






Harvest time also means hunting season around Driggs, so our outings now involve wearing orange. Bridger, as always, is oblivious to the details and just happy to be out exploring.  Funny, but I'm often the same way.

Look at that blue sky, set off by emerging fall colors and uncrowded trails. Does it get any better?








As the weather continues to hold, we continue to sneak in final summer fun. An evening of golf with good friends Jere & Deb last week was a definite highlight...thanks, guys!










Meanwhile, back in Park City working, sublime Indian Summer continues.  This is Jordanelle Reservoir, and the East side of Deer Valley ski area.  In another month, it'll certainly be covered in snow.

Until the white stuff flies, we'll be enjoying the blue, red, yellow, and orange.  Happy trails!

Rick,

Kind of a strange way tot get in touch with you, but I remember one of your posts awhile back that mentioned your family was in the asphalt sealing business? I own the car wash in Victor and need our asphalt patched and sealed. Can you supply me with some contact information?
My email address is cjjensen@silverstar.com

Thanks
