The weekend included showing Doc the alpaca ranch, aspens at their peak, and some seasonal dessert. Good weekend.
1. Blue Moon Ranch, the alpaca ranch in Kamas, has lots of babies this year! (Long time readers, do you remember they are called crias?) Here is a little boy born yesterday:Photo from their “What’s new?” page linked to above–go see lots of cute crias there.

Be sure to plan on visiting during Fall Open Farm days, too–the last weekend in September.
Upset by the latest news? Feeling blue? I have two words for you: Baby alpaca! The first cria of the year was born at Blue Moon Ranch Saturday:
Saturday at Open Barn Day had lots of sunshine, fall colors, and baby alpacas:
There was a lot of yarn, too, but I had come without a project in mind. Fortunately, the ranch will have some yarn up on its website next week. Or maybe I’ll have to visit again!
