FRISCO — Even a short walk in the woods can be rewarding these days, what with wild (and delicious) edible mushrooms popping up all over, along with a veritable feast of berries, which always do much better in wet years, especially when the rains are followed by some warm and sunny days. All this on a day that also brought the first snow to the Colorado high country, although we probably shouldn’t even think of it as the first snow, since it’s only been a few short weeks since the last time frozen white stuff fell from the sky. But for some reason, in August, it does feel like the first snow of the new season, while a July dusting (also not unheard of) seems to belong with the past winter. In any case, get out and enjoy summer’s bounty now!
