MAJOR MELTDOWN - APRIL 26, 2012


Jenny Lake - 4/25/12
The warm spring has continued throughout the month of April melting off significant amounts of snow.  The Park is looking a lot more like early June rather than late April right now, with very little snow left on the valley floor.  The continuous snow-line is at about 8,000' with only the heavily drifted and/or northerly aspects holding snow below that elevation.  Many of the valley lakes are wide open and flowers are starting to bloom in Lupine Meadows!
