Snow and Trails

Snow has damaged a lot of the trees
and left its mark on the trails.
Look at the uprooted trunks
fallen along this route to Stewart Cascades.

I expect the trail maintainers-
often volunteer students-
will be along to remove them at some point.
Meanwhile, it is possible to climb over them.

And there are snowfields, too.
Many of the upper trails are closed.
A few crazy people with skis and so on
are probably loving the basin snow,
but I just hope it melts off by August--
enough so that I can do the summit hike without spikes!
