It is brown out there huh? Any flowers blooming along the way?
Yep-pretty dry up there this year. There wasn't much snow to speak of and I was hiking up to 12,000+ ft. I don't recall seeing any flowers, perhaps it is a little early for them...
Did you happen to see the conditions of of the Army Pass? Was there standing snow, or was it all melted?
There was still standing snow up New Army Pass from what I could see (I didn't go up the pass)--I think I took a picture of it, I will post it and let you know if I have one. Are you heading up this weekend? Have fun!
