Looking South

OK, mostly I wander back and forth in my east-of-north-facing front room, watching the Strait at the end of the street. But from the bedroom, I look south. Constrained by telephone wires and an apartment complex, there is Unicorn Peak, I think, and behind it, entirely snowy, Hurricane Hill.

East of there, Mount Angeles and Klahane Ridge.

Further east still and out of the panorama image, other bits of skyline between the trees of the neighborhood.

M. says that the snowpack on Blue Mountain is 166% of normal. And that temperatures this spring are a good 10 degrees below normal. Not melting up there anytime soon. She has a visitor coming for Memorial Day, and called the back country ranger to find out if they might be able to hike the Little River trail down from Hurricane Hill to the Elwha Ranger Station at the end of May. "Late July," he said.
