Update from the Lake: Fall Leaves and Some Snow

While at the lake most recently, about three weeks ago, fall started acting a little like winter...

...although it seemed as though it must have been a late fall: aspen leaves were green, yellow, and orange all at once.

Yellow aspen leaf.

Reddish leaf, unknown variety, with shadows.

Another yellow aspen leaf.

Shadows of aspen trees across pine needles and aspen leaves.

The last day we were there, it snowed on the higher hills.

Leaves with raindrops.
It rained down near lake level, with snow barely sticking in a few cooler places around our yard. We decided to leave (no pun intended).

Snow along the road.
And so we left, having turned the place off for the winter. Shortly after our trip we passed into a fairly late Indian summer, and after a week or so of that, we went into winter, with snow falling in desert basins below 4000 feet.
