I hope to be back at it after the broken heel late fall or early winter so it cannot come soon enough!

Somebody at the Manitou Springs Cliff House snagged this image off one of the Pikes Peak summit cams yesterday after the storm.

If the picture of Mount Sneffels on the Facebook page is any indication, hopefully we're in for a snowy winter.

edit: Deleted.

This thread should not have been derailed into talking about anything other than the hope of snow to come. :-D

Also....not to be too big of a jerk, but after watching a number of excellent TRs this week get pushed off the front page, there are a few other reasons to be dreaming of winter. Such as:

I never understand why people post that garbage. Do they think its insightful, or that people want to read that? :-k

Perhaps Somewhat of a Prick needs to morph into A Complete Prick and start laying into these people :twisted:.

Sorry to have deviated this thread.

Here is my favorite shot from last winter, to get us back on track...

Now that is GORGEOUS! So excited for winter!

Here's my fav from last winter, not from hiking but from skiing at Mary Jane.
