current high country conditions?

Postby xwok » Thu Jun 19, 2008 2:34 am

I'm planning to hike Saddlebag Lake to Tuolomne Meadows next week. NP website says the snow line is 8,000 feet. Has anyone been in that area yet this season (Lower McCabe Lake, Cold Canyon, etc), and what conditions should I prepare for in the higher elevations of the hike?

I was nearby at Vogelsang on June 13-15 and snow level was approximately 10,000 ft, with some smaller snowpatches below that elevation.

When I was in the wilderness permit office in Tuolumne on the 19th, there was a sign saying the road to Saddlebag lake was closed. I just got back from a trip to Glen Aulin and May Lake, and there was no snow encountered.
