Autumn, Full Moon, and Snow! Oh my!

Oh, yeah! is more like it.

Had to drive out to the airport early this morning, and got to see -- between quick glances at the road -- the clouds lift and the mountain world emerge into the first Autumn dawn light.

Over Hesperus hung the full Harvest Moon, a great glowing cue ball (or maybe that was a flashback to El Rancho last night ...). And beside it stood the dimly lit La Platas, wearing on its peaks a fine but distinct patina of powder ...

Yum!

I didn't have a camera with me (which is probably best, given mydistracted mountain-lusting from behind the wheel anyway). But I was able to get some shots before that mean old sun melted away the season's first snow.

Have a taste.
