Yes, we have no snow...

The last snow survey report says this: "The final snow surveys for 2022 have been completed by park staff. The Merced Drainage is at 33% and Tuolumne Drainage is at 31% of average snow depth and water content."

We're already seeing trip reports from Hetch-hetchy and beyond, with minimal snow at the lower elevations. What this will mean for trips later in the summer remains to be seen, but this is not good news.
