Still a lot of snow in the area. I heard someone just got through the pass last week, so that is good. Photos taken from U.S. Forest Service - Sierra National Forest page on date of post

The Creek Fire has caused mandatory evacuation orders to be in place including this trail: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/7147/ While this trail is not threatened by the fire, Highway 168 is threatened and authorities have chosen to clear out the entire region to help with firefighting efforts.
