First snowfall...

on the mountain, that is!

We have had a fair bit of rain lately which translates into something else at higher elevations.  Today I noticed the results of the first snowfall on the mountain, which until now has been bare.

Here is a photo from July when there was just a titch of snow left ~


and today


Like icing on a cake!

    1. Thanks Hilary ~ I hope the snow stays up on the mountain! We have had the end results of Hurricane Ana in the form of heavy winds and rain.,,the colourful leaves are enjoying their flight to freedom :) A mixed bag of weather, for sure...like yours.

  3. Wonderful shots - as soon as we get a clear day I'm going out to see how the Sisters and Mt.Baker are doing - I'm sure there is a lot of snow by now, with all this rain.

  5. Ooer, sign of things to come. Getting near time to dig out my shoe spikes ready for those frosty, slippery early morning walkies.

    1. Thanks Snowbird ~ I do enjoy seeing the mountains, especially as the seasons change. This was a dry summer so the mountain was very bare!
