First whiff of Winter in Steamboat

It is still very much Summer in Steamboat Springs but I had one of my favorite annual epiphanies. What is cool is that I'm never actually thinking about it and almost always totally absorbed in whtever I'm doing at the moment, then it hits me.

Tonight I rode up to the top of the ski mountain here in Steamboat as the sun was setting and got my first message that winter is on its way. A slight breeze hit me with that smell of the changing seasons and a little chill to go with it. I always love the first day every year that that feeling hits me. We have several more months of great summer and fall weather ahead of us before winter graes us with her presence but tonight was my sign that the balance has tipped and we a starting to move towards winter again in Steamboat Springs. Send a nice shiver and through my body that is both warm and cool at the same time. Only 118 days until opening day and there is so much to do in the meantime!

Yea, I forgot about that "smell" of the changing seasons ... hasn't hit the lowlands yet.
