Randy Bachman had it right. Eventually it’s time to move on, and it’s a pretty special thing. Life has it’s transitional periods just like the seasons do, and if you find yourself in the right place at the right time, watching the change can be incredibly rewarding.
It’s always a catch-22 though, because in the Wasatch if we get snow too early, it means death layer for the avalanche season when the inevitable November drought hits. Only time will tell how it maps out.
I don’t hang out with my mom that often,
so I thought it would be cool to invite her on a few runs this season. One, aiming for the Pfeifferhorn, got hailed out at Red Pine Lake (it was actually pretty scary, the lightning strikes were frighteningly close), but this one on the east side of Mount Timpanogos turned out to be quite the grand adventure.
We stood around waiting for the clouds to break so I could get the shots I wanted, but it took longer than anticipated, and she started to get a little cold. However, at the end of the day we got some great shots, had fun and got a little exercise. Plus we saw mountain lion tracks. That’s always awesome.
Here are a few of my favorite transitional shots from this season.
