HIKING -- When you have Labor Day holiday plans to make a big backpacking trek, sometimes you just do it, take the iffy weather as it comes.
This year, it came in the color of white.
Here are photos from a few Facebook friends who proceeded into the first significant snowfall of the season to have a wilderness experience.
Not one of them complained about an unpleasant adventure.
"Typical Labor Day weather," said Lisa Sunderman with her "no problem" attitude that rubbed off on her family and friends at Gwillim Lakes.
"Yeah pretty quiet!," said Eli Francovich, after returning from Beehive Lakes in the Idaho Selkirks. "Loved it though. Clouds cleared occasionally and the views were amazing."
"The perfect end-of-summer backpack," said Ken Vanden Heuvel after returning from the Eagle Cap Wilderness. "With the forecast of snow in the mountains, I searched NOAA for the best place to experience a winter wonderland. I found it! Razz Lake in the Eagle Cap got 6 inches of powder on Saturday. It was cold and it was awesome!"
