Ascent Trip ReportScouted from Rock Creek Pack Station (not plowed beyond there now) to Treasure Lakes for Mt Dade trip this weekend. Almost full snow coverage the whole way. Weather nice in spite of NOAA forecast for 80% snow showers (it was sunny and warm). Snow gets soft and mushier as the day progresses. Got up to about 50 degrees. No accessible water above about 10,500' although water flowing freely below there. Treasure Lakes fully covered by snow, can't tell where the edges of the lakes are.
