I car camped at Government Mineral Springs CG last weekend, 3 of 5 sites were in use on Saturday. I day hiked Soda Peaks Lake from the bottom on Saturday and Observation Peak out-and-back via the Big Hollow trail on Sunday. Only a fraction of an inch of snow on each, though others told me that at 4500 feet on the other part of the SPL trail, there was 6". There were far more people in the Trapper Creek area than I'm used to, especially this time of year. I'm guessing they were Gorge refugees. There is now, and will be an even worse, shortage of snow-free, or at least snow minimal, hikes this winter.
