This week's Hot Pic: "September Snow," by Greg Friese, Plover, Wisconsin Greg took this photo on at the end of September in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

"Frequent snow showers passed over us that day, rarely with little accumulation, but it made for beautiful paddling," says Greg. "That is my wife, Amanda, in the bow of the canoe. Believe it or not, she is smiling from ear to ear. I took the photo with a Nikon CoolPix 885."
