First Snowfall of the year in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. This is at Lake Blanche in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah, about 9500 feet. Snowed during the night and I got up early and hiked in hoping for some aspen to still have leaves at this elevation. Only a feww did but I thought this made a beautiful scene.

I really like this scene. The last aspens with colors (and leaves) and their reflection make this shot a joy to view. Should be a top 10. 9
