4wd trail head is open to register.

We hiked up to the meadow at 12,500ft

The trail had numerous 3 and 4 foot high snow drifts.

The trail thru the meadow was indiscernible (willows) - not even sure if snowshoes would help
after it had softened.

The switch back up to the 13,000 ft ridge was snow packed.
