We left Homer in the rain on October 3, but the rain was not continuous and the drive had long stretches without rain.
Some of the higher mountains along the way had very light sprinklings of snow on top (“termination dust”), but down below where we were it was clearly still fall and not winter. At Tern Lake, about halfway home, we stopped to photograph swans and scenery.
Now back in Anchorage, the rain of the last couple of days has produced serious termination dust on the mountain tops, as viewed from our living room.
It’s time to change over to studded tires and prepare heart and soul (and car) for winter.
