Who Wants to See Southern Deso?

We climbed Ralston on Sunday and snapped a few pictures. The snow situation is pretty desperate. We didn't hit solid snow cover until about 8800 feet.

Russ, your pictures really illustrate how little snow there is around here. I was comfortably in shorts and t-shirt yesterday, with the temp in the low 60s.
