I just drove up Little Cottonwood Canyon. I saw snow. It was bliss.
The first snow of the fall is called termination dust. But I think it should be called initiation dust. Rather than looking at the season that passes with the fall of snow, I look forward to the one that comes. White mountains, peaceful nights, expensive outer layering, basketball, and skiing.
Snow is white for a reason. It's pure happiness and joy to those who have learned to make the most of it. A message to those who haven't, move from Utah, because here it falls deep.
Yes, this picture was taken today, Sept. 24, 2007, at Alta, UT.
