There was solid snow from about 10,000 feet on up. It is still quite deep in the trees, but it was starting to melt. At this point I wouldn‘t go near the ridge without some sort of flotation. There is SO much snow everywhere! Pic #1 is looking south from the ridge, in Pic #2 you can see the ridge in the background.

Thanks for the pics. I was wondering what the area was looking like.
I'm thinking it might not melt out enough for Memorial Day and my plans unfortunatley...
