Bliss Bits 9/17/2014

Park City has been enjoying a late summer heat wave, making it easier to savor these last few days of summer. But it’s changing– the leaves, the temperature at night, the kinds of food I’m craving. The elk are busy bugling behind the house and hungry deer are chomping my garden flowers; the fact that the animals have come down from higher elevations means that true fall is just around the corner. But not just yet. Here’s a handful of happy things from the week!
