May 18, 2011: It is snowing in the Sierra's today and all this week. Mammoth Mountain is reporting a record snow fall of 650" this season. The current snow is going to slow down the spring melt. Looks like the spring will be happening in the early summer. I start the JMT in eight weeks. Looks like snow on the high passes and higher than usual river crossings. These two issues will have to be dealt with carefully each day. Should be beautiful on the other hand.
