It’s always interesting to visit other parts of the United States and see how their seasons vary. When our kids were in high school and ran cross country, we headed to Idaho every September for an invitational meet. I’d always do a comparison to the weather in Star Valley and Boise — it would always be warmer in Boise, and the leaves weren’t as far along in their transition.
