I hiked from Snoqualmie Pass to Stevens Pass from 7/29 to 8/4.

There are still some snow patches at higher elevations. There are still some steep snow patches near Chikamin Pass and above Spectacle Lake that I needed an ice axe to cut steps to get over safely.

A few overgrown areas, not many down trees.

I avoided the ford of the creek that drains the Mt Daniel glacier by hiking down to Cle Elem. A ranger I saw on the trail said that the ford was chest deep.
