Photo of Mt. Baldy was taken the week of October 12. Although it was a little warm the following weekend, snow is in the forecast for this evening and later this week. The trees are quickly dropping their leaves in the upper canyon and the brilliant colors at the base of the canyon are starting to fade. Winter is on the way. Skiing is just around the corner with a tentative opening date of November 20 at Alta.
