First Frost

The days have been sunny over the past week with the exception of Monday when the sky was overcast and there was a bit of rain.  The temperatures continue to cool, especially in the evenings and with that comes more brilliant colors in Little Cottonwood Canyon. While I was stopping by the Sunnyside Store on Wednesday, one of the staff who lives at Alta mentioned they had frost on their windshield that morning--the first frost--a sign that locals look forward to. The Store will remain open for a couple more weeks, until September 26.  The hours are Monday-Friday 7 am-5 pm and on weekends, 9 am-7 pm.  In addition to snacks, beverages, t-shirts and hats, you can also pick up your season pass. 

Unsure what to do this weekend? With daytime high temperatures in the mid-60 range, it's still lovely to be outside. A hike to Catherine's Pass or Cecret Lake about mid-day followed by Sunday Brunch or Saturday Lunch is going to be pretty tough to beat for an ideal weekend. Not a hiker? Take a drive in Little Cottonwood Canyon and enjoy the beautiful fall season.
