Beautiful shot, Steve. What's the snow level up your way?

Dondo, I have only done hiking on the Silverthorne side of the Gore this spring.

The day this picture was taken there was snow on the cut off to Boulder Lakes. I ended up going to the Boss Mine and bush wacking for a while and it was passable as long as I stayed out of the thick trees. Pretty soggy ground. Ended up raining/snowing/hailing that day.

The next day I did some serious post holing from the Mesa Cortina (Wildernest) trail towards Willow Creek.

On 5/20 we saw some people skiing the side of Buffalo and on 5/21 I ended up hiking the Willowbrook trail to the falls. Only snow on the last section to the falls. Pretty deep in the trees still.

Was snowing in Breckenridge today but the snow is really starting to melt.

Thanks for the report, Steve. My wife and I are planning a day hike for later this week and we were thinking RMNP. But your photo reminded me how much I love the Eagles Nest Wilderness.
