Blanca and snow on other peaks

Postby Beagle » Sun Jun 07, 2009 7:02 pm

Anyone been up Blanca since Memorial Day?

Any recommendations on peaks with the least (Ha!) snow ?

Thanks

Here is a thread with pix from Blanca taken last weekend:

And a TR for LB from this weekend. There is a pic of Ellingwood and Blanca taken from LB.

I can't say for sure which peaks are snow free as I'm on the hunt for the snow right now, but read the recent trip reports and you'll get a good idea which peaks have the least.
