During our big hike, we encountered this massive slab of snow. Even though it was July 17 — and maybe 75 degrees — the snow still had a long way to go before it became water. That was the largest glacier I had seen at such a low altitude. (Last winter was one of the snowiest in many years.) For scale, Jay climbed on top — he’s below the point of the yellow arrow.
Takeaway: As you get frustrated with that situation that just doesn’t seem like it will ever change, be patient. It may take some time. And some warmth on your part may speed the desired change.
