I took these two pictures before it snowed. The flower garden is pretty much wiped out and there's very little to take a picture of anymore except the devastation caused by below freezing temperatures and a little bit of snow.
My latest plan on when to leave Denver, which is not so much a plan as a fleeting thought, is Sunday afternoon. The weather is not a motivating factor anymore since it's chilly at night and 60s in the daytime and is predicted to be so for the next 10 days at least. But a new reason for leaving has cropped up which I had never experienced before because I've never stayed here this late in the season before.
The sun is now noticeably lower in the sky, and my boondocking spot next to my daughter's house is shaded, either by large trees or buildings for most of the day now, so not only is the Arctic Fox not being warmed by the sun, which means I'm using extra propane to heat it, but more importantly I'm getting very little charging from the solar panels.
So with my batteries not getting charged up as quickly as they should, and my propane use increasing it looks like nature is telling me it's time to ease on down the road.
