    Ok,.. well, we are right on the edge of beginning a brand-new snow plowing season here in Alaska,.. so ready or not, here it comes. I don't have the same number of "pre-season" scenery photos that I would have if I had been around here earlier,... so just a few will have to do in introducing the new plowing season,... and the new snow each year starts showing up each year in August on the higher mountain tops,... it stays about the same time the leaves start changing colors in early September,... if that doesn't get ya excited,... then you're in the wrong business,...:bluebounc

    Some of these came from a good friend of mine taken in September while moose hunting,... but the threat of snow becomes real when the temps fall below freezing every night when skies are clear,....

    New snow in the fall is very distracting to me,... when mountain tops sport a new white coating in the morning,.. it's hard to concentrate on anything else,... :redbounce

    But it probably makes waterfowl somewhat nervous,... knowing they have very little time left before they need to move to a warmer climate in the south,.... prsport

    When I got home from way up north a few weeks ago, the mountains in my backyard were getting a fresh snow dusting almost on a daily basis,...

    The snow in September creeps closer to treeline, but usually doesn't stick until October,...

    But now, as of today, the middle of October, we have several inches of snow on the ground,... all the lakes are froze over,... temps get close to 0° F (-18° C) on most nights lately,... so at any time now we could get dumped on big-time,... so the fun & games are about to begin,.... :redbouncepayup:waving:

    Awesome pictures as always. We only need about 1/4 of the snow you get up there though.
