Winter Cometh

Last Sunday, the High Peaks already had white caps.

Tuesday a really hard frost hit. We'd already had a couple mild frosts, but this was a true killer frost. Everything was rimed.

Thursday night snow was in the air, but nothing stuck. This morning, however, we woke to a white world.

Admittedly, it wasn't a lot of snow (about an inch on the car), but it was enough to send the plows out with sand and salt.

We may cringe at winter's approach (it's too soon), but you can't beat the view of a pink sunrise on a snow-covered mountain.

(That's Santanoni, by the way, just in case you were wondering.)
They say that some of the High Peaks already have over a foot of snow. Yep, it seems like winter has its toe in the door (although rumor has it that it will be in the 60s again in the next few days).


  1. Wow! What gorgeous sunrise photos! But lovely as frost and snow may be, I'm glad we've had neither yet down here in Saratoga County.

  2. I am not ready for winter at all (even if it is ready for me) but your photos are glorious and wonderful...almost make me miss the trips to deliver our daughter to Potsdam

  3. At least winter is good for photos! We've only had mild frosts so far, but I'm sure the real stuff isn't far away. Your beautiful photos almost make me look forward to the cold.

  4. Still catching up from my trip. No frosts here yet, because we're protected by Lake Ontario, but, they can come at any time. I love winter, and can't wait to see the first snowflakes.
