Seeing that first blanket of white in the season like I did on this mornings' run got me going even more excited for the snow to start flying! These peaks were totally bare yesterday.

This was taken this morning? Beautiful pic. If this is from this morning, the leaves are really going to peak early this year.

I believe that's Alaska, hence the leaves changing late August. Cool pic.

Yep, yesterday morning in Alaska. But no matter where it is, just seeing that first fall of the season is really exciting! I could post some aerial pics of a lot of "The High One", but that may just be too much of a tease. :wink:

You're down south of Denali, right? Certainly haven't gotten anything up in Fairbanks yet, but certainly are getting the fall colors.

I was actually in Kantishna, a remote unincorporated 'community' on mile 92.5 of 93 in the interior of Denali Nat'l Park. However, we flew out and drove south to Talkeetna for a day. More snow covered the peaks today - it's time to ski!

I finally took a look at this thread and I have to cast my vote for this photo. Well done Bean! The texture and composition are amazing! Let's not spread this Colorado secret too much. I prefer seeing no other groups in winter.

As it is getting colder in CO and winter is over here in NZ (and I'm about to head home), here's a few from this year. I reckon we should keep this going until we can get on to this season's photos. It was a FAR below average season (it's currently raining outside at 1380m), but it was still pretty decent. All of these are right around where I work, I have heaps more, but no time to deal with them. Enjoy, think ice and snow.

In bounds, it just kinda goes on like this for a bit, then to a big unprotected face, then to a steep, rocky, slotted summit. Your's truely in the photo.

Image
Mt. Phipps 1965m, This monster is right off the ski field. If you look close you can see three climbers on the upper face right in the middle. The skiable line is skiers right in a hidden corner. These three has average conditions, having to deal with some sheet ice down low. Photo: Your's truely

Image
Little Phipps 1728m, Also just outside the boundary and commonly skied during work. You can't see it in this shot, but the area behind me is cliffed out and there is a manditory air (2m-3m) to get to the steep ramp I'm on. The snow was pretty good though thin on the ramp. Photo: Matt Clark

In light of the potential for a little bit of snow...

For all the ice climbers around. May not skiing but I'm still dreaming.
