    Looks like a touch of fall beginning to set in. Nice.

    The town of Creede sits at app. 9000 ft. Those ridges in the photos are 10,000 ft. I live at 8000 ft. It's actually colder in the lower elevations ( i.e.. bottom of the valley). We've already had a 28 degree morning! Alamosa, which sits at 7200 ft. and the bottom of the San Luis valley ( the largest alpine valley in the world), is often the coldest place in the continental US. -40 occurs more often than they'd like!
