The peak avalanche lilies have past but there still were some. A lot of snow banks, but not enough to get us off trail on the Timberline for the short distance we were on it. Mosquitoes and flies were out but more interested in my hiking partners than me. They were spraying liberally while the occasional swat was adequate for me.
PS - We talked to a couple who went over the high point via Gnarl Ridge, said there was 60-70% coverage.
Through the Dollar Lake burn (Dollar Lake didn't burn)
a few fields like these, but no more oceans of lilies
snow banks on Vista Ridge
no snow right at Timberline Trail jcn
also some snowbanks along the TT but none at the unsigned cairn for the turn to Dollar Lake above the TT
The Puddle and the Mountain
