As the snow gently falls outside and the world nearby is covered in white, it is a good time to reflect on the year that has been and the new year that lies ahead. Here at the Aspens Lodge, each season brings its own special kind of beauty–and a beautiful year it has been–blessed as we were with a bit more moisture in 2022 than in the previous couple of years. Lush shades of green in the pastures and on the hillsides lasted longer into the summer than usual. Wildflowers bloomed in abundance. Fall colors blazed brilliantly, if but for a short time, and now winter has descended with a cloak of white providing snow, aplenty, for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling. What ever the season, there is a reason to be outside fully immersed in the beauty that surrounds.
