Snow free:

Soda Peaks Lake Trail #133, from FR 54 (closed from the other side still). Lots of trees down though.

The PCT between Crest Camp and Big Huckleberry Mtn - and lots of bear grass.

patch of snow at Honeymoon Meadows. 3500 feet elevation. East side of Olympics. Other people were getting all the way to Anderson Pass through spring snow.

From Augspurger, I could see Adams got a light dusting yesterday, maybe about the top 500 feet. By 3pm, it was mostly gone.

Snow can't fall when there's no moisture in the sky. Seems like forever since we've seen more than 0.02" of rain at one time.

Somebody got some 'splaining to do.

I think your photo is mislabeled. It looks like that was in New England...

Today I was roughly halfway between Silver Star and Siouxon.
My high point was 4200'
I encountered a bit of spotty snow. I didn't measure, but I'm guessing 2"-3" in open flat areas. No snow under forest canopy.

Cinnamon Ridge, SW of St Helens.
A light dusting of fresh snow around 2900, then old hard snow around 3600 or 3700 ft.

There is far less snow on the East side of Mt. Hood than I have seen in quite a while. Road 44 is completely bare and on a whim decided to take 4410 up to High Prairie. You run into a little bit on about the last .5 mile. I don't think I have ever driven up there this late in the year. Considering how foggy it was when we left The Dalles this morning it wasn't bad up on the mountain.
