Alpine Snow Melt

Greetings Northeast Alpine Flower Watchers!

The alpine zone of Mount Washington is starting to lose its blanket of snow. In the following three photos, you can see the snow melting and the trees in the valley beginning to leaf out. I've heard from a reliable source that Diapensia is starting to bud on the Bonds of the Pemigewasset Wilderness in the White Mountains. The alpine flower season is nearly here!

With the changing seasons, please hike safe and check local weather and trail conditions before venturing out into your respective alpine zones. Although snow may have melted above treeline, many trails may still have snow and require winter travel gear.
