Unremarkable quick afternoon after work except just wanted to note the the excellent snow cover, still.  There is a thin line remaining straight down from the highest snow spot below the Table Mountain cliff near AP, skiers right of the prominent rocky point.  Requires taking careful notes on the way up, not obvious where it is when are on top.  It will melt out in a few days but might still go this weekend.  One steep spot past a rock at the choke point half way down, I elected not to solo it so climbed back out, but others recently had.

View from the top of Table revealed big time snow cover all the way out to Lasiocarpa Ridge, it's early July conditions out there.

A continuous line from Table Mountain down to the basin on August 19th, that's amazing.

A few photos later if they turn out worth anything.

46 for me, you are one ahead.  But, I will make #47 more worthwhile than this jaunt.  I was admiring the pix of Ruth from a couple of days ago, might be just a little better in September than it was for us last fall.  I just love that summit view.
