Here are two pictures from the edge of Joffre Lake looking in that general direction from last Sunday.

That is a mighty zoom, what kind of camera/lens did you use?

That would be awesome on one lens although some of those super-zoom point and shoot cameras might be able to do that.

It was a Canon t1i. First shot is at 10mm on a 10-18mm. Second is at 250mm on a 55-250mm.

Thanks Steventy. Would you assume snowshoes after a week of warm weather?

Hard to say - we only went to the edge of the third lake and I haven't been in the snowpack recently. I'd probably do it just be safe. I'd bring an axe as well.

Default Mount Taylor - May 24th

Hiked up to Mount Taylor on May 24th. Definitely lots of snow leading up to the Tszil-Taylor col. We had one ice axe, and one trekking pole and felt completely safe. Snowshoes would have been nice, but certainly were not necessary. The ridge to Taylor had several snow strips to cross, but post-holing was minimal and posed no real challenges. The route up to Tszil was signifcantly snowier and more difficult. My second photo below shows a bit of the Tsizl shoulder.

distress.bark, thanks for the info, pics are very helpful. I didn't end up in the area that weekend. Planning to spend a few days there at the end of June now. Will likely poke up in a week or two for a conditions update.
