It was a real Indian summer day on Nov. 12, 1909. The sun shone dimly through the atmosphere giving the landscape a golden hue. The weather was warm and a haze hung overhead giving the view of the far off mountains a halcyon appearance.
The second week of November, the week of St. Martin's Day, Nov. 11, is the traditional time for Indian summer. After that winter is expected to settle in for good. (Note...in 2009 our golden day came on Nov. 9.)
