Carson Pass Wildflower Update 6/23/19

Carson Pass Information Station reports

Little Snow and Wildflower Update…
We all know you’re longing for those beautiful flowers to show their faces, but we have to wait a bit longer on the Carson Pass Trailhead.

Docent Julia spent a few days in the mountains and got home yesterday, she said, “I was just up at Carson Pass for three days. I hiked to Frog Lake twice, there is still a lot of snow right behind the building heading south. I went to the Pot Holes across from Silver Lake (they’re pumping) and did the north side of the PCT for a little ways; it is almost completely clear with a few snow patches.

Over on the Meiss Trailhead, Docent Alice said, “Red Lake Peak from Carson Pass this past Monday, June 17. The view from the top shows clearly how very snowy the Winnemucca/Round top side still was. The hike up to Meiss Col, though, was much better. It had some snow patches, but wasn’t too tough. (Coming down I, and several others, did lose our way right at the end). I was able to go from Meiss Col to the top of Red Lake peak snow free, by leaving the trail and heading up to the peak just past Meiss Col.
There were lots of flowers out on that side!”
