What signifies the changing of the seasons? Is it a day on the calendar? A change in the weather, perhaps? For those of us who call the High Country home, the changing of the seasons is often dictated by the everyday happenings here.
Fall arrives much sooner than a day circled on the calendar in late September. From the ringing of the back-to-school bell to the first kick-off on the football field, fall is in the air. Turning leaves, chili tailgates, and pumpkin spice quickly follow. But before our turkey dinner has even settled, Christmas tree farms are scouted out, lights are being hung, and skiers are heading down the slopes.
Winter may be the longest season here. For long after the calendar has announced the first day of spring, snow may still find itself lingering on the ground. But in the distance, a faint train whistle begins to blow announcing that indeed spring has come. Snowy mountains give way to rushing waterfalls and fields of flowers. The days become longer as spring stretches into summer. Locals find themselves surrounded by visitors who marvel that we get to call this place home.
Yes, each season has its own special place here in the High County. We love them all, celebrate them all, and strive to elevate the everyday happenings of each unique season. Welcome to Four Seasons Boone.
