Historically, the dog days of summer were noted by the rise of Sirius, aka the dog star. Traditionally, they’ve been associated with heat, lethargy, drought, fever and are commonly the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer. It seems this time of year, I lose interest in most things that don’t involve floating around with a cool drink in my hand – blame it on the dog days.
However, it’s awfully nice this time of year up at 10,000 feet. We even found ourselves bundled up trying to catch heat off the fire.
