Utah Floods Spring 2011

Well, this wasn't a personal flooding disaster of huge consequences (like some people are experiencing around the state), but I did hope to do some camping and partying over the Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately, it snowed, adding to serious flooding conditions in Utah. We usually meet up at the ranch, but...

First, the stream flows...




And the road up to the ranch would have been a real thrill...


So camping was out. But the girls hiked up to the ranch (without telling me... damn their eyes...), and took some pics of the ranch grounds.







Hopefully things will dry out by lagter in the month, or July 4th. But I don't know. Supposedly the full snowpack is still in the mountains, and only this week has the weather moderated with warmer temps. Could be August before peak runoff!

Thanks to Jane and Alejandra for the pics.
