Snow Holding On in Uinta Mountains

By this time of year, the snow on the Uinta Mountains in Utah have normally given way to grass and wildflowers, but not this year, as is shown in the image below which was taken by the Landsat 5 satellite on July 15.

A cool spring is part of the reason why the mountains are holding their white caps, not to mention the fact that there was simply more snow this year than normal.
