Default Frosty Larch update 2019-09-21

We went with low expectations, cloudy weather forecast and still September, but it turned out pretty nice. The weather held out for the day. Larches are just starting to turn yellow.
Parking was almost full at Lightning Day use area, we were lucky to get a spot. It seems there was some race going on. On the way up, every 3 or 5 minutes a runner would come down the trail. Most of them were pretty friendly. Frosty camp was full of tents, it seemed like 15 or 20. There was a slight trickle of water in the creek.
Had a nice lazy lunch in the meadow, had a nice catnap in the sun.
On the way down it was the opposite, we only ran into 1 or 2 people, including a strangely deserted Frosty camp with all the tents set up still.
Lots of good fall color and worth going!

Thanks for posting that Martin. Looks like frosty larches could be early this year, and snow in the forecast later on this week.

The larches looked pretty good yesterday when the sun was shining however I'd give it till next week with more golden colors. The advantage of hiking during a weekday is less crowds.

We are at Frosty right now. Surprised to have cell phone service. The trail is packed nice on 20 cm of snow
Most of the larches are still green

Perhaps need to wait another week before the colours become prime !

The larches should be close to or in their glory now at Mt. Frosty now.

14 cm of snow at Allison Pass from the storm today. I expect the larches will be pretty white...

The highway cam looks like winter! Hopefully the high freezing levels forecast for Friday will melt some of it.

Banff / Foothills it is snowing like there is no tomorrow & Trans-Canada is one huge mess all the way to Calgary.

I guess skiers will be happy
