Did Missouri --> Iowa --> Emerald today.
Creek crossings in Missouri Gulch are now easy. In the upper gulch, the trail was a little muddy, probably because of the deluge the area got Tuesday night. There are two snow fields sticking around just before you reach Missouri's northwest ridge, but neither will cause you any trouble. Otherwise, summer conditions to Missouri's summit.
I was surprised to find a good trail down Missouri's south ridge -- it's easy class 2. There's a fainter trail up Iowa's north ridge. Both are in summer conditions.
