Jay,

Do you have any info on snow levels in Emigrant this season?

Lower Relief Valley shows no snow as of today- I bet there is still snow higher up at Mosquito Pass. CDEC.gov says the snow was only 66% of normal and is melting off rapidly. I don't think its going to be a major issue.

Jay,

Wish I could go with you...so pretty out there.

I am going with some friends and relatives to Yosemite for a day hike from the valley floor to the top of El Capitan and back down.

Going to be a long day.

Will take photos and share with everyone here.

Wish I could clone myself and go on both trips.

Be safe and have a great time.

I have a trip to Fletcher Lake/Vogelsang High Sierra camp this weekend. If I chicken out (I'm not sure I'm ready to hike/camp on snow) I know I have a backup plan. I went up to Emigrant last year (Wire Lakes) and loved it.
