Interesting picture. Sure not much snow for late June...

Yes, and if you look closely, it looks like Lake Catherine, below Ritter and Banner, is melting out.

There is no snow impeding any day hike in Yosemite. I've done 21 hikes in the high country since late May and the only problem were downed trees-- most of which have been removed by chainsaws and mules.

I'd imagine this year the west slope of Ritter will melt out pretty well. A lot less snow visible on it in the photo than I would have expected.

Hopefully, we will avoid the mosquito-fest of last year.
