April through June, 2011

June is the wettest month but it is not Mud Season because the sub-surface ice has melted and grass starts growing to cover up the mud. Afternoon thunderstorms are the rule and the occasional shaft of sunlight creates some wonderful views across the canyon, including double rainbows. This was a very wet June; the rain coupled with our above average snow pack has contributed much to the flooding in the mid-west and south. The only good news for those living downstream is the weather has been cooler than normal, so the snow pack is not melting as fast as it might.
