Snow

Intermittent snow - not hard to cross

Started out from the Sunrise parking lot at about 6:15 AM. The parking lot was about 1/4 full. Took the trail up to Frozen Lake, then down to Berkeley Park. The flowers are at full peak along the trail to Berkeley. Headed back up to Frozen Lake and headed up to 2nd Burroughs. Stopped there for a bit and then headed out to 3rd Burroughs. Small patches of snow to cross but nothing was too difficult.

After resting for a bit on 3rd  Burroughs, headed back via Burroughs Mountain Trail then switched to Wonderland then Sunrise Rim back to the car.
