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.
