Mono Lake Finishes Season With Record Snow/Rain

In Uncategorized

It’s been a very wet year in the Sierra building a very high snowpack. Mono Lake, Yosemite’s eastern neighbor and a wonderful sidetrip during the summer months when Tioga pass is open, received 144 percent of average signalling one of the wetest winters in years.

The Inyo Register: “The state Department of Natural Resources uses several snow surveys to arrive at its figures, and it figured that the Mono Lake Basin finished the snow season with a snowpack packed in the mountains at 144 percent of average. The DNR concluded the Owens River drainage snowpack was at 175 percent of average for the year, with final totals from two snow survey sites yet to be completed.”

    I’ve read that the snow pack is at 165% this year for the Yosemite Valley area. Let’s hope we don’t have serious flooding like there was on New Years Day, ’97!
