    Maybe we can just call dibs on the thread titles. I'd like to reserve:

    In northern Michigan the turn comes in mid to late August in the form of several days of cold rain. Hemingway wrote about it in a story called "Three Day Storm" which takes place on Walloon Lake in the northern LP where his family had a summer house. The young protagonist is in the process of breaking up with his girlfriend during a 3 day storm. I read the story while I was working at a family camp on Walloon Lake, during a 3 day storm in August while breaking up with my girlfriend of that summer. (Same girlfriend I spent a lovely evening with while everyone else in the camp was watching Armstrong walk on the moon.)

    While I can feel it coming, I can see the crest, my tire has not broken the ridge.... But the motivation from seeing it is real this time of summer/of the climb.

    I thought about this thread over the past couple days, when the weather abruptly turned, from blazing heat to heavy cooling rainstorms; I put on a long sleeve t-shirt today. Last night had a skiing related dream. Feels good.....

    Last Sunday in the Uintas things went from pleasant temps to pounding hail and cold rain in about a minute. Got to the car soaked to the bone and chilled to the core, the thermometer was reading 43 degrees. This weekend I wore a puffy the entire day while climbing. It's not the turn yet, maybe a quick flicker, but it sure feels good.

    It still stinks of tourist, but I felt a little twinge in the air this morning and it was a balmy 40 degrees.

    Spent the past week in Calgary and the Turn was definitely in the air. But despite the fall like weather we are Still a long ways away I fear. Itching for ski season.

    Where were you in the Uintas? I was up there with my kid when that storm came through. It was a nice one.

    yep.

    The Turn still hasn't happened here, but it's close.

    Wandering around the headwaters of the Weber river by Pass Lake. Cold slog out of there in the tall wet grass.
    The turn happens in the Uintas in mid-August usually but I think this year has been wetter and colder than average up there...

    Only red leaves I see are from saplings. Nothing at a little elevation. Flowers (weeds) are still coming out. Been a somewhat wet and mild summer. Some years the drought starts bringing out fall colors already with a little elevation.
    That said, the animals have been acting weird. Birds grouping up like they're getting ready to fly south. Deer almost ready to shed their velvet and grow their winter coats.
    Still time for outdoor shows. Seeing John Butler today
    No longer stuck.
