We're still planing a 98 hike. I'm not so sure El Nino is going to
impact our plans too much. When I went to the snow survey pages I
noticed that none of the survey sites were registering levels too far
from normal, with the except of Beach Meadows. But even so, the
entire snow pack at Beach Meadows was gone by June 2 even for that
nasty El Nino year. We are leaving a bit later and going a bit slower
initially that the Jardinian schedules dictate, so we won't even reach
that point until June 14. Now I know I'm probably being over
optimistic, but I'm taking this survey data as a good sign that our
trek might not be impacted too drastically.
Additionally, all snow pack bets could be off if the Sierras get a lot
of warm rain between now any June. That could thin the snow pack and
increase the creek depth considerably.
Of course, I'm sitting here in Seattle where we are having a very
unremarkable year. So please, if I'm totally off my rocker, please
explain the snow situation to me.
