      comparison to last year June 30 - just a small snow field next to the
      trail along the rock face south of Cathedral Pass. Sunrise Creek was
      about 6 inches of flow. Nothing on the trail itself. Bottom line - when
      they say lots of snow on the big passes, they really mean LOTS of snow.
