Thought you might be interested in seeing what almost three months of change on Mt. Shasta can bring. In this case, after a record breaking winter, the road to the highest driving point above Panther Meadow was closed until mid August. The first pic is at Bunny Flat in early June shows the road completely blocked with snow. The second pic is the view yesterday in early September. This was very late in the summer generally for the upper mountain to be open. Record heat the last couple of months helped the snow to melt. Personally, I am grateful for cooler temps and looking forward to a wet winter. All my relations.

    @awomanonthehillside It's amazing to witness actually but the top mountain probably received more than 50 ft. of snow overall which is massive.
