More fall colors from from the Steamboat Ski Area

looking down towards Moonlight from Duster It’s remarkable what a day of sun will do to dry out the mountain, as I was able to ride to 9000 feet and snap some more pictures of our rapidly evolving fall landscape. The picture on the left was taken from Duster looking down towards Moonlight and highlights the South Valley of Routt County. The picture on the right is a similar perspective, but vertically oriented. looking down towards Moonlight from Duster

Lastly, the picture on the right was taken near Rendezvous saddle looking up towards High Noon. looking up towards High Noon from Duster

Chilly mountain bike ride, but beautiful fall color

Looking up at Storm Peak from just below the Creekside/Tenderfoot  intersection

After our first significant wintry mix down in the valley on Friday, some portions of the trail had dried enough by  the end of the day to venture out. I was able to get to just below 9000′ on the BC Skiway portion of Tenderfoot before turning around in chilly 39F temperatures, but was able to capture Storm Peak with snow in the pines and color on the aspen near sunset. I’m guessing around 6” up top based upon a similar amount recorded at the Tower Snotel site located on Buffalo Pass at a similar elevation to Mt. Werner

Fall colors above 9500 feet

Monday, September 23, 2013

After an interminable monsoon and a very wet September, fall colors are appearing above above about 9500 feet, at least as of the fall equinox. A storm blew threw last night and we also have our first snow about half way up Mt. Werner. The colors started later than usual due to the warm and wet conditions in the first part of the month, but it appears the color will be good this year, although not long-lasting due to the late start.
