Persistent temperatures below freezing and a fair amount of snow are unusual here in the middle of November.
Still green trees are prematurely frozen.
The steep roads were so icy that I decided to take a hike to the Strahl Lake instead of risking a car wreck. Usual this trail is rather bland, but the early snow provided some inspiring views.
We all should try to show that much color when we are frozen…
All this will thaw in the next few days, and slowly fade. It tells us that we need to catch the moment when it’s there.
