This Week in the Butte
It’s hard to believe that it’s already the second week of August. Fall will be here before we know it… Event this morning the air was slightly colder and low hanging fog clung to the Peak. Wildflowers have peaked and soon we will be searching for the first golden aspen leaf of the season. Don’t worry though, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the last few weeks of summer here at the Butte! Make sure to check out these events happening this week!
