I’m at a family reunion this weekend on the Colorado River enjoying the company of my extended family but sweltering in the 100+ degree heat. Thankfully we have A/C and the river to cool off in when we go on floats together and I’m hanging out with cousins I haven’t seen in a decade, it’s a lot of fun.
There’s this magical moment at night when the sun sets and the bats fly out into the pink sky while we listen to the sounds of the river and watch the day disappear. Everyone is celebrating the first official week of fall but it still feels like summer here!
