Once again the Leconte weather has changed on a dime. The crew went from wearing snow boots to sandals. They entertained themselves by basking in the warm sun and running the trails around the mountain. It was a pleasant 51º on the mountain. The low only reached 33º. I can feel spring in the air.
As you can see from my picture, there is still snow on the ground in places. The reports I have received about the trails are favorable. There will be muddy and icy spots to maneuver around, but I feel it is possible. Some of the park trail volunteers have gone out Boulevard to check on the conditions. I hope to hear from them soon about the shape of the trail. I will pass that along as soon as I hear something.
