Guanella Pass Road is bare, clear and dry from the seasonal closures on both sides to the summit trailhead. (Make that clear from 285 all the way across to Georgetown! But in spite of clear roads, the County does not plan to open the road the final ~2 miles (each side) until near the end of May.) The north side is now fully paved all the way to the summit trailhead. Yea!
Some packed snow throughout the upper climb, but absolutely NO NEED for snowshoes now. (Ski poles might be useful. - we used our today.) Plenty of afternoon mud on the lower slopes and in the bog/rushes.
