Went in to the lower Paradise Gl. area again this last Sunday but failed to get any pics because we were "on instruments" the entire trip. We were nonetheless astounded at the snow loss in one week -- at least ten feet!! In addition, the downhill "ski tracks" from last week were at least a foot higher than the surrounding snow; they were actually high enough that you had to watch yourself skiing across them or they would trip you up.

Charles and I are talking about going back again this coming Sunday for more torture points. Join us if you've a mind to.
