Fall is knocking on the door, soon, the mountains will be covered in the colorful hues of red, yellow, and orange. The sun is going down earlier and there’s a chill in the air as we lean into the true end to summer. Plans are being made to take a fall leaf looking trip or two, the kids are back into their routine of classes, Friday night’s are alive with FHS Panther football. Thoughts turn to making plans for the holidays, the young and young at heart, are searching for that perfect Halloween costume. It’s Fall in the mountains.
