Surprise! Snow Falls on Utah Campers at High Elevations
Over an inch of snow fell Saturday morning (Aug. 15) above 10,000 feet in Utah’s Uinta Mountains and in the Wasatch Mountain range after a cold front swept through Friday night, according to KTVX-TV, Salt Lake City, Utah.
Not only did it snow at a peak time for camping, but many of the local campgrounds were full and tents covered with snow.
The snow lasted for several hours beginning late morning. Near freezing conditions prevailed Saturday and Sunday nights at those chilly campgrounds.
