Growing up in the mountains of Wyoming I remember being confused as a kid about the seasons. Books, calendars and everything clearly stated that each season lasted 3 months. "How could they get it so wrong?" I thought. While summer was 3 months long, spring and fall clearly only lasted a couple of weeks each. Winter, on the other hand, seemed to fill the remaining 8 months out of the year. (Although snow was always a possibility in any season, even summer occasionally.) Even as an adult, living the places I lived I still thought of spring and fall as relatively short seasons. Then I moved to Cedar City. That first spring stretched out and filled months of time instead of weeks. I remember soaking in that spring time sun in my backyard for the first time and being amazed how long spring had lasted. Then came fall and the same thing happened. I've lived here several years now, and the long lasting seasons are one of my favorite things.
