Melt water from the snow field runs off to the south in a small creek that has been dammed to make St. Mary's Lake. Slopes on the west side of the lake still carry some snow that looks nice as it reaches the lake.
As it is direct snow melt, believe me, that water is cold. Maggie put her front feet in once while getting a drink and after that would have none of getting in the lake.
People wandered in the snow field, many tourists drawn by the novelty of snow in June.
Also saw this skier. I was hoping he would stop and strap on his skiis so I could catch him coming downhill. But he just kept trudging on up the whole time we were there.
Here's Connie and Sadie on our way back down the hill. Nice way to spend Father's Day.
