Although it might seem that summer is here in the valley bottoms, it is still a fair ways off in the high country.

I decided to have a look at the Tak Falls road today in Yoho National Park.

There are still avalanche deposits across the lower sections of the road.

I expect that the large slide paths that cross the upper section of the road will have deposits on the road of ten to twenty feet.

The river is still running fairly clear, which is an indication that serious melting has not yet begun in the alpine areas of the park.
