Week in Review: Smells and Sounds of Summer in the Mountains

The sound of fans.

The smell of fair grounds.


Strawberry banana smoothie

The sound of swing sets.

The smell of sweaty hands and feet after long hikes.


Wildflowers at the Y

The sound of live music in the park.

The smell of library books.


This gal was hanging out by my “office” on Tuesday morning!

The sound of ice in drinks.

The smell of fresh strawberries.


Ft. Collins farmers’ market on Saturday morning

The sound of diving boards.

The smell of bike chains.


Sunday morning bike ride down Spring Creek trail in Ft. Collins

The sound of fireworks.

The smell of sunscreen.


Brand new Chacos–my first ever pair!–purchased Friday

The sound of sandals slapping concrete.

The smell of campfires.

The sound of sprinklers.


Old Town Ft. Collins

The smell of barbecue.

The sound of birds chirping and owls hooting.


Farmers’ market spoils become Saturday night supper

The smell of gardens.

The sound of afternoon thunderstorms.

The smell of pine trees on a hike.


View from Reception Rock–one of few places I can get cell reception here at the Y

The sound of stars and silence.


Thanks, as always, to Megan, for hosting Week in Review.

  1. I love the smell of fresh strawberries although I could do without the sweaty feet post hike. 🙂 Anything with books and I’m in though.

    We’re going to have a whole lot of sounds here soon with it being Ave’s first fourth of July: fireworks, sparklers, large crowds. We’ll see how she does. 🙂

    Happy Monday and thanks for looking up.

  2. Ellie says:

    I love the smell of fresh cut grass, sweet sweat and fires. I love hearing the birds when I wake up, the sun on my face and the sound of rain on a metal roof. I love this time of year too!

    1. Joyce says:

      I love the sound of rain on the roof, too!

  3. Cora says:

    The sound of birds chirping through still silence in the early morning.
    The smell of the barbecue and fresh cut grass (stealing from Ellie)
    The sound of kids jumping into the lake and laughing in the distance.
    The smell of a bonfire outside your tent.

    1. Joyce says:

      Bonfire outside your tent. Heck, yes!

  4. The smell of summer rain. Oh my gosh if I could bottle that up, I’d be the happiest girl! By far my favorite smell 😀

    1. Joyce says:

      And the sound, too!
