Winter approaches

A November storm clears over the Gore Range early Sunday morning.

FRISCO —I’ve been waiting for a good snowy morning for a few weeks, and even though the temperatures (in the low teens) were bracing compared to the mild weather of the last few days, it was well worth getting out early for a walk on the Tenderfoot Trail, which always offers great view of first light on the Gore and Tenmile ranges. It wasn’t exactly the biggest dump, but after a long hot summer and last winter’s snow drought, it’s great to see anything white falling from the sky!
