The difference a day can make

Yesterday, we left the city for a beautiful afternoon of hiking in the woods. 
 
Canada Thistle in bloom.
 
I captured photos of wild blooms
 
 
and of snow on the peaks in the distance.
 
 

Overnight, a change in our lovely fall weather occurred, starting with rain, which by the afternoon turned into snow.
 
 
Yes, you read that right.  S-N-O-W.

 
For all I know, it's still snowing out there, I haven't the heart to look.  This photos were taken late afternoon and it was still coming down steadily.  Goodness, it's too soon for us to skip into winter!

  1. Oh no, Katherine, not yet! I'm shivering when looking your snow photos. I hope it's something strange and soon you have great 'indian summer'! We had yesterday First rain. Today again blue sky. Early in the morning it was only (!) +20C but it's already getting warmer. My favourite season is beginning! Try to enjoy boots and pullovers! x Teje

  2. Oh no, not snow already! Perhaps its just a blip on the radar! We had a deluge of rain and hail today, putting a dampener on our Spring weather too!

  3. We've been on our way out of Calgary and experienced snow on Aug. 31. Later we heard that behind us (thankfully) it was white-out conditions at Lake Louise. Oh, the hazards of being in mountains, but then it passes, and beautiful fall weather comes, maybe even an Indian summer, and there are always those lovely chinooks in the winter.

  4. Wrapping you in a virtual quilt and warm hugs! The earliest I remember snow when we lived in Alberta was Thanksgiving weekend in October. This must be the September polar vortex they've been predicting. But take heart... according to the weather forecast you'll be back up into nice temperatures by the weekend.

  6. I think you're headed for a gorgeous Indian summer, and that REAL winter weather will be delayed for you. FINGERS CROSSED! ;)

  7. We were hiking in Canmore last week and ran into snow at the higher altitudes. Guess we got out of Dodge just in time! I couldn't believe it when I heard you had snow. Hopefully this will pass and a lovely Indian summer will follow.

  8. I heard about this... rats!!!

    Hopefully it's not too nasty for you. I just posted my recipe for the soup I made yesterday... it's called "Making Up For The Weather Soup".

    Stay cozy....
