Is it Fall Already?

This morning I noticed a significant dusting of fresh snow in the mountains behind the Mendenhall Glacier, and there’s no doubt, a chill was in the air. It’s hard to believe how quickly summer runs out here in Juneau. Sure, there’s a chance we could see a handful of gorgeous days in the next month or so, but they’ll be colored for a different season even so.
