dmatt / Up the Down (Spring) Staircase

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

For lack of anything we can do about the weather perhaps we should shoot the messenger! :evil:

Thanks a lot Dmatt, like we really need to hear about any more snow.
Good idea OR!

hmm.. indeed the sensors are showing more snow now. And Mav, the camera at tioga won't be back until after the road opens, and if the conservancy decides to fund the cam. Seems silly cuz they could just slap a cam onto the Tioga pass CDEC station (TES) and go that route.. oh well. Would have been fun to watch this year with the snow probably covering the entry station.

Yes I know it is supposed to be up when the road opens, but will it be this year
is the question, and for how long?

Well.. I've been emailing the IT person in charge (Mary).. she's working on it.. When it's up, it's up.. It went down due to power and phone line probs, and then they did work in the shed where their PC was housed, and well the wood dust plugged the vents..

The TES station isn't any better. it was taken out early last season by a lightning strike.

I guess we get what we get.. Nice view though, when we can get it. I'm supposed to be up there and fishing July 21st, but i'm not so optimistic about ice out..
