First snow of the season verified

We take our visiting friend Peter out for a hike even though it’s raining, figuring it might be fun to get a little wet.

Finally I call for the U turn, just in time for us to get back to the trailhead with frozen hands and feet in a hard driving snow. Now that’s a final day of summer.
