May 23, 2016, SW ridge Naches Peak
« on: 05/23/16, 06:20 PM »

There is about 3 feet of snow pack at Tipsoo lake.

I found continuous snow on the SW ridge crest of Naches peak, to the knob S of the peak.

There was 3 inches or so of fresh snow, a mushy proto-corn, which was not grabby and covered up the pollen! Clean ski bases and the skins stuck for a second lap!

No other souls up there aside from chipmunks... there were few larger quadraped tracks..

It was very murky with thick fog, no rain. I could hear, but not see, a flock of geese barking as they flew S of the mountain.

Nice Report Watson!
The snow is going fast, so we've got to GET IT WHILE WE CAN!
