It's melting off already. This morning at about 7AM there were no voids in the snow at Badger Pass and the grass wasn't showing in the valley meadow. Every bit helps though. This dump should be a good shot in the arm for the wildflowers.

Do you guys think they might close the 4 mile trail due to the recent snow. I am planning to go tomorrow.

Check this link in the AM: http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/conditions.htm#CP_JUMP_469992

Right now there are no trail closures but that can change. Take hiking sticks and some sort of traction devices for you boots.
