I know it's too early, but... 

 

the leaves are turning up high...

 

the mice are making nests (according to the care taker of Twin Falls Lodge, the mice start building nests eight weeks in advance of the weather turning --- they started building last week)...

 

and the weather forcast predicts snow in the valley -

No fall color yet in Breckenridge area. There's still some of last season's record snowfall on Whale's Tail, where a friend who hiked there a couple days ago said it's still 12-14 feet deep (was over 40 feet in April). We've had some hail, but no new snow since June. Three little dabs of snow left in Horseshoe Bowl too.

In So Cal, we still have 2-3 weeks of hot weather in front of us, but then it gets down right perfect for Oct-Nov.  Clear blue skys, temps in the low to mid 70's during the days.  We call it, "locals summer".  I look forward to this time of year as I start surfing a lot more. That means I am back on my training regime, after packing on the lbs, from a fun summer spent goofing off with the teacher wife.  So just a few more weeks of heat to go and then I can start looking forward to winter.  I would be so stoked if Mammoth received another huge dump in November, like last season.  Skiing pow before Thanksgiving is a great way to start a seasonbiggrin.gif

The signs of oncomming winter has become an obsession...

 

Another sign last night - the elk have started bugling - one or two males near to my window starting at midnight and they continued until at least 1:30.

Just out for a good long walk along a creek running through the area.  Lots of white guys out getting firewood.

 

Always a good sign.
