The first image was taken on route 631 near The Chalets at Country Resort last week and the second image was taken this morning.

Although today has been grey and gloomy with intermittent rain and strong winds the good news is snow is almost certainly falling at higher elevations. The white stuff has also been forecast to fall here at village level later in the week. Despite the bad weather the autumn colours are still inspiring.
