Langille snowfields, July 19

We parked the car at Cloud Cap trailhead on Wednesday morning around 7AM. Hiked up the east moraine of the Eliot Glacier. Half an hour later just below Cooper Spur we reached the snow. It was surprisingly good thus the temperature in the Hood River Valley are up to 90F lateley. The suncups were mellow and not an issue at all while skiing. We found the legendary "Butter" even in the lower elevation until we reached the Timberline Trail 600.

Enjoy the pictures

Washed out bridge at the Timberline trail, but a massive snowbridge will work as well
