“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.” —William Shakespeare

As our summer officially ends this month on Monday, Sept. 23, we move into the beauty that is Autumn in Idaho. As Stanley Horowitz once said, “Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.”

While we still need to wait until October to enjoy the peak of fall colors, don’t give up on summer yet; there is still time to discover some of Idaho’s great lakes this month, and Roger Phillips highlights three of them in this issue.

As our nights begin to cool off and we get ready to swap out our summer shorts for something a bit more comfortable, we explore some great fashion trends and ideas to kick off the fall season in style.

Enjoy the best of what our beautiful Idaho summers provide, and from our hearts to yours, we wish you the very best this September.
