Mt San Jacinto is once again snow-clad … and dangerous

The 4+ inches we received as rain at my hiker oasis (elev. 4100 ft) fell as snow above 7500 ft. The PCT as it crosses the south, west and north flank of Mt San Jacinto is again covered in snow. The forecast makes it likely that we will see more freeze/thaw cycles at higher elevation in the coming days, making the trail between mile 169 (Apache Peak) and 191 (Fuller Ridge) treacherous for hikers.
