Anyone have some recent photos or condition reports from the Henry Fork area in the Uintas? Looking at bagging Kings Jan 21. Do the Uintas have snow? :wink:

I just looked at the North slope snotel sites, they are showing 3-4 inches of water in the snow pack including Hole in the Wall which is the closest to Henry's Fork, after settling that's probably about 18 inches of snow.

Lol, No Matt -10 degree would be nice compared to last time... Our Thermometers could only show temps down to -20..... which it reached at 4:30 pm and it took until 8:30am the next morning to rise above -20. We don't know how cold it got. I was in a Marmot -20 bag with all of my layer, including big puffy coat, and slept nicely.. other then the fact it was snowing in my face when I breathed up.
With all that said, Yes I am going back for more :mrgreen:.. got to work on those cold weather camping skills.

My hat - if I wore one - is off to you, Mooner. I thought it was -20 last year but then I thought naw, that is too dang cold. Compared to that, Henry's Fork in late March is freaking balmy.
