The October snow has painted Dubois as a winter wonderland. This scene in town is almost Christmas card looking. Temps have warmed up to 50 daytime and that snow is melting. Will be in the back country till July next year though. Winter is closer than we want to think.
Was at Brooks Lake last week and caught this pack string coming in from the Teton Wilderness. 2 guys and 2 girls with a pretty good string of horses. Was meat hanging off the last horse string so they had had some success. Was a great time to come out as it started snowing the next day and put down 2-3 feet in the back country. We had 8" in Dubois and temperatures were in the single digit range.
