Spring Thaw: Medicine Bow Peak
Medicine Bow Peak, Snowy Range, Wyoming
Winter is long and severe in the Snowy Range of Wyoming. Spring thaw is still underway in late June as can be seen by the ice partially covering Lake Marie. The ice recedes only gradually; the sun will melt some of the ice during the day, but it will freeze again during the night. Through this repetitive cycle the lake—reflecting more and more of the sheer face of Medicine Bow Peak—moves into Wyoming’s brief summer.
