This time of year the seasons can change in a week or a day
September 26 and it was hot and hazey in Yosemite. Record temperatures were expected in the Valley. We stopped at Olmstead Point and I took this shot looking towards Tenaya Lake.
A week later, October 3, the sky was blue and there was snow on the distant mountains.
They change with elevation as well. At 8,000' the aspens where dressed in orange and yellow.
At 9,700' the trees were dressed in white. No ice yet on the lake.
These last few days at the cabin we enjoyed the quiet beauty of the first snowfall of the season. This, we know, will soon melt.
We enjoyed it for a few days and then shut down for the winter. It was a rare treat, most years the first real snow doesn't come until after the water system is turned off.
There are more places in our world to be found at That's My World, Tuesday; hosted for us by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia.
