Nice, thanks for the update. Any observation on bugs?On May 28th snow was too deep to make it past about 9400ft on upper setting road.
This weekend, June 10th, the road was clear to the top and the trail to East Shingle was clear. There was still some 1-2ft deep drifts in the shaded areas.
It was hot and the trail was very busy, tons of dogs and bikes. 15-20 cars at the trailhead on saturday.
No flies this weekend and no mosquito bites, pretty muddy in Erickson Basin.Nice, thanks for the update. Any observation on bugs?
I can report that this last weekend there was no bugs out. They didn't have a chance in-between the gale force winds and the rain/hail/snow events.Hoping the bugs stay in remission for one more week. By the 4th, it'll be a lost cause.
guess I gotta start getting into the big mountains in June, so far I mostly just try to stay away between "snow climb season" and "edge of fall"Hiked up to Allsop Lake. None of the main three pests of the Uintas yet (bugs, sheep, people). Trails muddy but snow-free.
06/25 Mosquitos were really bad on the north slope and so was the fishing. Highs around 65, 40 ish lows.
I think the people of Utah would happily take a temperature drop or some storms!Given my history anywhere in UT besides the Needles, it is my duty to inform you folks that I'll be headed that way on the 27th, and in the Uintas through the 7th of October. I can't say if it will be drastic temperature drops or a procession of storms this time, but ...it's coming
