    The first snow has fallen, and the weather watch has begun.

    Here are a couple from Loveland Pass. There was more farther south (higher altitude), but I didn't get photos. IMG_0449.jpg IMG_0453.jpg

    What's with those nicely painted lines on the road. That's weird. ;)

    lol ... something about this photo (including the road) reminds me of a bald eagle. Maybe they are the wings.

    Excellent railroad tracks.

    It snowed the last 2 nights here in Breck. Looks like an inch or more above 13,000' and a dusting from 12,000'-13,000'. The south-east facing aspect on Boreas was very nicely blanketed. Sure is a pretty sight! :)

    I was hoping to get up there and see if there were any skiable lines (just something simple for Sept turns :) ), but I'm guessing there's been enough melt now that it may be not worth it looking at the summit depth ^^^^.

    We saw some yellow leaves on the aspens on Kenosha Pass Sunday.

    Pikes Peak had all melted off on Saturday.

    Shorts was a bad choice for the September ski this morning up at St. Marys. Felt like fall had come in full force -- esp. compared to now at home in sunny Denver.

    Worst conditions I've ever skied. But it completed my first year of skiing every month.

    Congratulations! September St Mary's is really shitty. There are no other words for it.

    It's amazingly bad :). Nice pic, though.

    We still have Sept to go, and next weekend is out as those two are off to Cali to run XC. Will be ugly with grins.

    And is it just me, or do my socks go on forever?

    I actually thought the snow on September 6th was pretty good. The low angle stuff was rough, but the steeper pitches were great! Also, we lucked out and stumbled upon a slalom course that had been setup by a father/daughter team. Was that by any chance someone from this site??




    At 0:40 there is a shot from that day...





    Well the leaves have really started to change in the last few days. Here are a couple pics of the foliage from yesterday.




    Woke up to 30* temps this morning in Breckenridge. Frost all over my deck and a blanket of snow above 10,000'. Hopefully this is a sign of more good things to come!!
