Hiked in from the Ostrander Lake Trailhead, since Glacier Point Road is now open. Only tiny patches of snow visible all the way to Grouse Lake, where we camped. Not a single mosquito--but it was cold! Water frozen in our bottles overnight. We decided we'd rather sleep in a warm cabin than a snowbank near Buena Vista Lake...so headed back out the next day.
Here's a shot of Chilnualna Creek, to give you an idea of the flow:

As some of the first people on the trail, we saw a lot of downed trees, but nothing that kept us from staying the course.
Now let's hope that this next week brings us tons of rain and snow...
