Update for April 18, 2018 (last update for the season)



"...the Tuolumne Meadows area with 1 ½ - 3 feet on the ground. Above 9,000 feet the snow depth is 3–5 feet. The Tuolumne River has mostly melted out and is still running high and fast. All stream crossings should be approached with caution. Most lakes even above 10,000 feet are only superficially frozen."



"Bears have been active for some time this spring as evidenced by their tracks in the snow."
