Mount Baldy on a cold, clear day

We are having an influx of cold Arctic air which brings very cold but very clear air into western Montana.

A new Fall wardrobe…

Even though Fall isn’t officially here yet, the south-facing hillsides of Baldy Mountain are beginning to show off the new season’s colors, making a hike on one of my favorite trails (USFS trail 340 in the Baldy Mountain Roadless Area) an especially pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Four days later

Today I returned to the trail that was in snow four days ago. I hiked only the first mile of it though because most of it looked like this, with several dozen blow-downs over the trail in just a mile:

and it was cold (the wind chill made it feel like about 15ºF), but it got me high enough for a few views to the south.
