up the mountain, down the mountain

Saturday morning we rode the chair lift to the top of the mountain, skimming the tops of the trees, looking down on mountain bikers and hikers and meadows that will be ski slopes. At the top, a rainstorm moved in, making the ride down colder and wetter than the way up, but still beautiful. It was a well timed trip, even with the cold and the rain, by Sunday a windstorm and knocked off most of the leaves at the top and on Monday snow dusted the highest points. Fall is almost over, winter is coming.
