Jefferson Snow Field

Jefferson Snow Field

We finally broke out of the fog for a few hours this morning. As usual it was a very welcomed change that was enjoyed by everyone up here. Two things that were really noticeable were just how green the vegetation is looking now, especially around the Great Gulf area, and secondly how small the Jefferson snow field has become. n

nIf you look carefully, just to the right of the center, of the main photo above there is a small white patch – yes that’s it – the very last snow we can see from the summit. It is melting rapidly now and surely won’t last more than another day or so. n

nWe are well and truly back in the fog now so who knows if we’ll get to see it again this year. Just think in another couple of months the next season’s snow may start to fall.
