Dear Glacier gurus,  Below is our field schedule.   Quin Ourada from Oregon State University, Tom Hammond from the University of Washington and Ben Pelto, will be joining me in the field this summer for the entire field season.  Melissa Park of Western Washington University and Maria-Coryell Martin an expedition artist will be joining for us for much of the field season.  This winter was wet, but warm too, the result was average snowpack at lower elevations and it appears probably above average snowpack at higher altitudes.  At right is April 1 SWE at five USDA Snotel stations including 2007 (Fish Lake, Lyman Lake, Miners Ridge, Rainy Pass and Stevens Pass).
