The Madison Valley is known for its pleasantly cool summer days and very low humidity. Fall is punctuated by the change in nature's colors as the Aspen trees turn to gold and the pasture land to beige. The nights and mornings are crisp and the days filled with sunshine. Wintertime brings snow and cold weather, but the sun continues to shine throughout the season, creating a unique and quiet beauty. Spring rains herald the warming trend and the completion of nature's cycle of life for the flowers and the abundant wildlife… in paradise. (Source: http://www.ennischamber.com)
