    Ok,.. so there's been some snow in the Colorado mountains so far,... but that's not the only place,... we've had snow in the mountains of Alaska more than once already,... & each time it creeps lower & lower down...

    New snow

    When it gets close to being pure white... it's at least a foot or more deep towards the tops,...

    New snow

    And when it gets about half way down... then it's getting right to the edge of the tree line...

    New snow

    But,... it's worth hiking around in the fresh snow if you can find something like this,.... so, get ready boys,... plow-time is just around the corner... :salute:

    More snow sightings,....

    No, he won't have this one mounted... both of these guys (one is my brother) have mounted moose racks bigger than this one... this is just a good "freezer" moose.


    Another photo of another friend & his son with a small caribou,.. with "termination dust" on the hills behind them,... :waving:

    More snow sightings,....

    The temps have been getting into the low 20's, & even high teen's now when it's clear at night,... so most of this snow will probably stay on the very tops from this point on,.... small ponds & puddles have ice on the edges now too, and in a couple more weeks, will be freezing over for good,... (well, at least until next May or June) :waving: :salute:

    That last picture would make a great postcard, almost looks unreal.
