As of Thursday afternoon there was little evidence of snowmelt affecting the springs to any significant degree.
Lobster Pot sources were a degree or two off with just a little bit more flow. Bear Den remains unchanged.
The snow in the area is best characterized as wet and slushy . . . packed where deep. Snowshoes and/or crampons were not necessary.
There have been significantly higher freezing levels, giving rise to concerns that the resulting snowmelt would soon affect the hot springs. However, the freezing levels are coming down this weekend, probably delaying cooling spring temperatures.
