It's almost all clear out there, just one avoidable snow field on the ascent to the saddle (stay left at the first switchback below the saddle to avoid snowfield). I ran into a small black bear (maybe 3 feet tall on all fours) and a porcupine in the dusk on the way down. It was a beautiful hike. I love how green it is right now.
