The weather quickly went from summer to winter this week. Thursday and Friday we had snow and low temps in the mid 20's. We had to disconnect the water and the heater has been busy. Here is a picture of the light snow in the forest.
Sherri and I are excited about our Rim-to-Rim trek on Monday-Tuesday. I wanted to get a warm up hike in Friday afternoon, but at noon it was blowing, snowy and cold. Sherri said no way to a hike, so I had a lot of convincing to do. We left at 1:30 for a short hike down the North Kaibab Trail. Fortunately for me, the weather changed and we were taking off layers as we hiked into the canyon. Photos from yesterday's hike.

Snow is visible on the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff. Next weeks blog post should have lots of photos from our rim-to-rim hike. Saturday 10/15 is the final night that the rooms are open, so it will be very quite by Sunday afternoon...moving on soon.
