Lack of Snow

20140117-190618.jpg

Which one is from January of 2014? Both pictures are actually. Where there is sun, snow is practically gone. Where the sun doesn’t shine, you have a layer of ice about 2 inches. This is just one area within the Sequoia National Forest in California.

How concerned are local Californians overall? The Governor today declared a state emergency related to drought conditions. He encourages people to use 20% less water to help out.

Lets hope things change soon. Otherwise this backpacking season may be challenging for water too. Time will tell.
