Re: Snow appears to be melting between Tolumne Meadows and around Thousand Island Lk
- Sorry for the delay. I've posted the photos at
The route of flight, which corresponds to the order the photos appear, was from Mammoth towards Thousand Island Lakes, then up towards TM and over to Yosemite Valley on the left of the plane.
Please add your comments if you recognize things and we can "crowdsource" this into a useful overview of trail conditions as of Saturday afternoon on July 23rd.
See you on the trail!

There is still quite a bit up on Island pass and in the area of Thousand Island Lake, but there is also lots of brown appearing and it seems all melted between TM and Donahue Pass (or maybe through to Island Pass - I didn't have a map with me to know exactly what I was looking at). I didn't get a good look at the section from Yosemite Valley up to TM.

If someone knows of a good place to post the photos where others can "draw" on them and add comments, please send me private email.
