Looks like that snow fell just before
Halloween, which is normal for northern UT.

How cold was it? In the twenties yet?

Thank you, I appreciate your comment. We do typically get snow in the higher elevations around mid-October. It can make for some amazing scenery with the Autumn colors and fresh snow :)
On this particular day it was down to about 24 degrees, however just a few days later when I was in the same area again the temps were in the high 40s.

Hey, not a problem..

I lived in Tooele for 13 years. I spent most
of my time in the Oquirrhs, but I'm hoping
those freezing/thawing cycles will not lead
to an extreme avalanche danger.

Not looking forward to hearing about somebody being "gobbled up" by an avalanche.

Guess ya gotta think positive.

The Oquirrhs have been one of the relatively close areas that I need to explore.

Yeah, it's always a threat in the winter and a tragic occurrence when it happens to someone. Positive thoughts and avalanche awareness/preparedness to keep safe.

They are predicting a good La Nina weather pattern that should be bringing us some good and constant snow. Hopefully it will be like 07-08 winter. Lots of constant good snow to keep the avalanche danger low!
