A beautiful sunny day today at Paradise Meadows revealed the snow level on the mountains remains at about 1800m.
Hikers are still enjoying the weather though – a group of students headed out on a week-long trek, and visitors came from France, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, and several provinces today.
There was frost overnight & the boardwalk can be slippery in the mornings.
The leaves are turning colours – the yellower ones are rhododendron, the red & purplish are blueberry & huckleberry.
Mist rises off the ponds as the sun warms up the meadows.
The highlight of the day was several flocks of Sandhill Cranes migrating overhead – perhaps a hundred in total.
