It was the first snowstorm of the season yesterday, September 21, 2017, which appropriately (or inappropriately, depending on who you ask) fell on the Last Day of Summer/ Fall Equinox.
I’ve been melancholy lately at the thought of losing our trails to winter again, many of which have only recently melted out from last year’s unforgiving snow season.
But as the snow came down, instead of sadness, I was filled with excitement- and a strong desire to bake cookies and light a fire. I don’t know why I’d been dreading this day so much – I really do love the snow…
The snowstorm was short-lived, but our mountains are still blanketed in beauty, and I’ve been listening to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons – Autumn throughout the day; embracing the changing seasons. Here are some shots from around town this morning, and Donner Pass/Castle Pass this afternoon.
