PCT Barlow Pass to Timberline

Hiked the PCT rom Barlow Pass Trailhead up to Timberline Lodge, and back, then down to Frog Lake and back this weekend.

Trail is clear, no significant snow, just some spots to cross over just east of Timberline at about 6,000ft.

Heard report from other hikers that there is still some postholable snow between the Lodge and Zigzag, but given this ridiculous record heat wave, don’t expect that to continue.
