Last Hike Before the Snow...

The first weekend in November, my husband and I decided to spend a day in the mountains. There was a winter storm arriving in the next few days. This would be our last opportunity to hike in the sunshine, on bare ground.

We packed a homemade lunch of baked beans, coleslaw, pickled beets, bread, trail mix, and a jug of water.

We drove about an hour to our destination, which is at an elevation of 5200'. The temperature when we arrived at the summit was a cool 33 degrees.

Once reaching the trail head, we would hike another 525' in altitude. Whew! It is hard to catch your breath in that thin, cold air.

The day was perfect, with all peaks and valley's visible; the colors were glorious!
Heavy frost covered some of the higher areas. Although my photos do not do justice to the heavy frosted scenery, it was very eye catching to view.

We were blessed with a beautiful day.

Thank you for stopping by.
