I was planning a trip in the eastern Sierra July 1-3. I am wondering what the snow conditions will be with the all time high snowpack this year. I am specifically worried about the trails to Thousand Island Lake, Minaret, Cecile& Iceberg, the lakes around Hungry Packer Lake and Brainad & Finger. I can deal with some snow patches here and there, but my two concerns are that the scenery is diminished if the lakes are frozen and valleys covered in snow, and hiking and route finding may become hard or impossible with the trails covered in snow.
I am considering changing this trip to Grand Teton and Wind River, including Cirque of the towers, but I am not sure it would be any better.
Anyone can make a prediction when the snow would be mostly gone?
