Another snowy spring in the Rockies
It has been another cool spring, with a lot of precipitation, much of which has still been falling as snow above eight or nine thousand feet.
This has come after a high snowfall winter - probably due to a strong La Nina current in the Pacific.
All over the Rockies, from Colorado to Montana, there are still high levels of snow on the higher ground - which is creating worries about flooding when it all eventually melts.
So it has been ideal for ski-touring, and will probably remain so, well into July.
