Ready For More

Snotel near Horse Flat off the Summit of the Alpine Loop at about 8200 feet yesterday showed 23 inches and is now currently down to 18 inches of snow. These evening rains and warming temperatures are probably going to start melting out a lot of it real fast. It certainly feels like monsoon season is already here given the current weather pattern we've been having around here the last few days.Not the Uintas, but I went up AF canyon last night and there is still a ridiculous amount of snow in the mountains. Last year at this time I was hiking up to Silver Lake without any snow, judging from what I could see last night, there is probably at least 5 feet of snow at that elevation this year.
Hiking along the benches a few days ago and there were more wildflowers out than I can ever remember seeing before. Should be a beautiful summer once we can get up there.
