First Day of Summer 2011 on the Beartooth Highway

Wow! Today is the first day of summer and normally we would be planning a first hike into the Beartooth Wilderness. Not this year! We drove up to the Summit on the Beartooth Highway yesterday just to see how the snowpack looks.

We are just amazed! We have never seen the Beartooth Wilderness so deep in snow so late in the year!
The views were just stunning!

We enjoyed the views and were just astonished at the snow along the road!
More images tomorrow.

That is stunningly beautiful but oh, the flooding that's yet to come when that melts. I hope people are prepared.

Oh my gosh Cynthia, the snow accumulation is amazing, isn't it! I know we've had something like 300% of normal snowpack in the mountains, so this is cool to see for 'real!'

We could use some of that round here! We have no snow so far this winter.

Looks like the icebergs have migrated south!
