Conditions persist as described below.
AUGUST 1, 2014
Granite Canyon is clear of snow. A bridge is broken in the North Fork but it is easy to by pass.
July 6, 2014
Granite Canyon mostly dry up until Marion Lake. The three Marion Lake camping sites/tent pads remain under snow with campers obliged to camp on snow until the melt out. Those wishing to access Granite Canyon from the JH Tram can avoid snow by following the tram/ridgeline all the way down to the saddle and then heading down. Good boots/trekking poles useful for getting into the next drainage west as you're heading in - as the trail becomes obscured in the trees.
