    Nice photo. There seems to be a lot of snow on it for being such a short mountain; is it still cold there this time of year? The reason I ask is because the snow is melted off our mountains where I live, and most of them are 2000 to 2500 meters in elevation.

    BobG: It’s not really cold, but takes time to melt all the snow. In the shadow areas of the mountains the snow lays all year long.
