SNOW STUBBORNLY CLINGS TO HIGH COUNTRY - August 1, 2014

The high country in the Teton Range remains pockmarked by snow that is still troublesome in a few areas such as the south fork of Garnet Canyon or Buck Mtn Divide.  Despite the painfully slow retreat in some areas, much of the trailed high country is becoming snow-free.  Additionally, the fixed lines are out on the approach to the Lower Saddle, which can be safely negotiated without an ice axe or crampons at this time.  Have a safe August!
