The colors this year have been great! FALL is beautiful. However, for the past two days the wind has been blowing hard and steady. We can see snow coming down the mountain...it's now at tree line.
This little ridge we see from our windows is always the last to get any snow...and it has snow down the face of the side now.
The leaves have all blown away. In the past years we've noted a big wind storm which blows away the leaves and the first snow a day or two afterwards. This seems EARLY...but it does seem to be following the pattern. The leaves are all gone. We predict the first snow/frost in the upcoming week. We are hoping it comes and leaves for a few weeks yet. This is fall in Alaska.
