    Well, it's that time of year again, when the leaves are falling,... the nights are freezing, and there's fresh snow on the mountain tops almost daily. The tallest mountains (over 10,000 ft) have heavy-permanent snow now on them already (1st picture), but the close & lower ones, such as the ones right in my backyard, get dusted all the time now, and are still going thru the snowing/melting cycles for a couple more weeks yet, before they start to build up their permanent yearly blanket of white,....

    Many gorges & valleys and even just patches still have snow left from last year's avalanches that isn't going to melt before it gets covered up with new snow from this year now,...

    It's close enough now that we could get our first snow all the way down any time now,.. even tho it won't stay for probably a month yet,... but it's almost time !! :D:redbounce:waving:

    Those are some beautiful pics. That's why I have a place in Vermont, so I can wake up to scenes like above.

    Those are some good looking pics there boss.

    I am in Smithers B.C next week and will be making the drive up to Hyder Alaska. I will be there for two days doing some sight seeing. Judging by those pics we will see fall colours and maybe even some snow. Are you farther north than Hyder? If not maybe I'm goa have to make a pit stop at your place and check out your boss and blizzard plows, who knows maybe even try them out:rolleyes:

    Everyone & everything is north of Hyder,... lol. You almost can't be south of Hyder & still be in Alaska. I'm wayyyyy farther north than there. Hyder is at the very southern tip of the "panhandle", and is only approx ½-way up thru British Columbia. There's nothing there the same as where I'm at,.. there won't be the colors like around here, no freezing temps, no snow yet,.. I doubt even on the mountains, except possibly the very tips, etc. But if you've never been to the Pacific coast,.. you'll still enjoy it,.. :salute:

    How far up in Alaska are you AK boss? Going by the pictures of the roads it looks like you live in the middle of no where.

    I'm in the area known as "south-central". I'm south of Fairbanks (which is approx right in the middle), but north of Valdez (which is on the coast). There's only one road here in this area & it runs between those 2 towns. The "other site" had a map feature where members could pin-point their location on a map of North America,.. which was kinda cool,.. everyone could see right where everyone else was located,... always wondered why this site didn't do something similar,.... :rolleyes:
