A photo taken near the start of the Talusdancers annual Last Pack Trip of the season, often in the Yosemite high country but this year just outside the park. These colors and this weather are part of what is so appealing about this tail end of the season.

One sort of funny story from the start of the trip: We arrived at the trailhead at Saddlebag Lake got out our packs to take care of the usual final organizing/loading before hitting the trail. As we finished, one of us asked the other, “Should we go ahead and start hiking now or wait for the snow to stop?”
