October Snow Welcome Home to the Adirondack Mountains

Mt. Marcy 1st snow 10- 17-15

Mt. Marcy “peaked” out of the clouds for a minute last night.

After we rode out Hurricane Joaquin on an east coast barrier island, the resident biologist and I jumped on an airplane last week and deplaned in 98-degree Tempe, Arizona for a three-day family celebration. Literary cognoscenti appreciate the effect of contrast when deployed in the written word. The result of leaving the desert to return to autumn in the lush Adirondack Mountains is equally dramatic. The snowfall that coated the trees and mountains this morning–the first of the 2015-1016 season–was icing on the cake.

Even the Adirondack chairs look content.

It is not hyperbole; the Adirondack region is glorious this time of year. Please enjoy my photographic homecoming celebration.
