We drove in on 8/10 and noticed a decent snow accumulation on the San Juans when we got to Montrose. We attempted the route anyway. Got to 13,500' and decided to try and wait for the snow to melt a little before moving higher.
However, the summer monsoon moved in before the snow melted enough for our comfort level so we headed down.
The trip was still worth it!
