My family is looking for an overnighter (2 nights would be OK too) to do this Thursday-Friday. My dad has been planning on Suprise Lake in the Goat Rocks. Looks like a relatively uninteresting destination and like it might have some snow still so I have been looking for something snow-free that's a little more exciting. It needs to be easy to moderate and within a few hours of Moses Lake. Suprisingly, I haven't been successful so far in coming up with a better alternative but right now I'm looking at the northern part of Mt Adams trying to gauge snow conditions from satellite imagery. Let me know what you've got.

It's early, June is a tough month.

Your best option might be Robinson Pass.  The Miller Peak and Navaho Peak trails are usually melted out sufficiently by now although you might hit a steep patch on the way to Miller.

This map might help. It has reliable estimates for snow depth across the western USA.

State of WA areas above 4500 got plenty of snow this season. Goat Rocks is still very snowbound.

Why not the Teanaways.  The meadow camp areas are clear, and you can hit passes or peaks as you like.
