It looks like a great ride. I really like the photo of the two quads in front of the lake. What is the elevation where the snow starts? I am hoping to get into Robinson Flat above Forest Hill before we leave for Colorado this year. Maybe the snow will melt in time.

Wow, that's amazing. We rode Boca on Saturday all the way to the Verdi Peak signal house (~8400 ft) and saw VERY minimal snow. We actually started riding around the 6000 foot level and there is absolutely no snow there. By this weekend there probably won't be any at the peak either.

Still want to hit High Lakes sometime this year, and maybe in the next few weeks, since it looks clear enough to make it now and the dust will be at a minimum.
