The snow sensors at both Tuolumne Meadows and Dana Meadows both recorded about 12" of snow.
White Fang Wolf showed about 7".

Anyone can sign up to see the Mill Creek cam on the Mono Lake site, "members" means just members of the site, not of the Mono Lake Committee.

Hm, crossing fingers that the long term forecast is correct and it's gonna be nice through next week. Would be great if it melted out for us to get over it the weekend before Thanksgiving and save a few hours on the northern route to DV.

It's getting close.... I predicted early December for closing the pass for the winter.
