SUMMIT COUNTY — The high country is melting out, but there’s still plenty of snow and ice up high, according to Kim Fenske, who recently hiked into the Missouri Lakes Basin. Today’s photo essay features some reader shots, and we’d love to see more, so if you have images you’d like to share on Summit Voice, email them to bberwyn@comcast.net.
