Morning photo: November daze …

Waiting for snow

Frisco Colorado snow
The autumn-reddened leaves of an Oregon grape stand out against old snow in a shady spot near Frisco, Colorado.

FRISCO — Not much to say about a dry November except that it’s been great to get out and enjoy a few more weeks of hiking on bare ground, and exploring the growing ice formations has also been fun. The snow will come, sooner or later, if, that is, we haven’t totally screwed up our climate with incessant emissions of greenhouse gases. That’s the kind of thing that eventually comes back to bite you in the you-know-what, but I guess we’ve all been pretty lax about the whole thing, thinking that global warming is something that’s going to affect the the planet sometime in the distant future. After this summer, and the start of what looks like it could be another so-so winter, we probably shouldn’t be so sure. Alright, enough ranting, now for some pretty pictures!

A stellar November day, with highs in the 50s … and the dead lodgepoles, well, they’re just part of the landscape now. I think I’ll actually be half sad and half relieved when these two old dead giants topple over.
