it's definitely frosty up there now. my friend Mason was up last weekend and he said that there was ice forming in the shaded places like Pinnacle and Central. not enough to climb, but definitely enough to whet his appetite!!!
on top of that we've finally been getting a lot of rain. the goround is getting soaked and that will be very good for the coming ice season. altho the wet weather is bad for the fall rock season, it's great for the ice. if we don't have a saturated soil, the ground won't freeze and any melt we get won't turn to ice it will just soak in.
so pray for fall rain!
