The higher peaks are looking mighty white from Denver this morning, there was ice on the running trail, and thick frost on every car parked out overnight. It's almost here. :-D

Yeah, looks like winter conditions on most peaks above treeline with quite a bit of snow and temps in the 10's and 20's. Summer is over. Quite suddenly. Seems only a few weeks ago it was in the 60's in the high country.

Bean and George James return and the forum turnover on the front page has slowed to a crawl.

Wow, summer must really be over now.
