Western Colorado's Grand Mesa received a considerable amount of snow on Saturday. Not bad for the first full day of fall. Take a look.

On Saturday, September 23, Grand Mesa Lodge posted photos of the amazing 5.5 inches of snow which had fallen by 11 a.m. By 3 p.m., they measured 9 inches of snow.

Grand Mesa Lodge, located at 25861 Highway 65 in Cedaredge, Colorado, features 14 cabins on Island Lake. Imagine, if you will, getting out and enjoying a mountain getaway, complete with snow, and it's not even October yet.

At the same time the above photos were being taken, Delta County Emergency Management issued a winter weather advisory for areas of 10,000 feet. Grand Mesa Lodge sits at 10,500 feet.
