Happy fall to you all, the air is crisp and cold, and the leaves are changing color!
These transitions mean that summer hiking is over and so is our 2017 MeadoWatch season! We have officially closed down both the Reflection Lakes and Glacier Basin hikes, are in the process of removing plot markers (they are removed for Glacier Basin, will be for Reflection Lakes shortly), and placed climate sensors to monitor temperatures over the winter.
Just in time too, as I was cleaning up the Glacier Basin last Saturday, I encountered a light snow shower passing through at the top of the hike, although you would may not have guessed based on the photo below. On that note, if you decide to go hiking in the fall be sure to bring extra layers as the weather can change unexpectedly!
Enjoy beautiful fall season and we look forward to seeing out on the trails again next year!
All the best,
Your MeadoWatch Team
