east side Lone Pine conditions

Postby overheadx2 » Thu May 08, 2014 10:02 am

I'm getting a little tired of the usual So Cal day hikes, so I thought I'd try and head up to the east side with the dog and wife for some day hikes. Thinking of camping at Grays meadow area and day hiking from there. Any info on roads open, trails and snow conditions in the area? Any recommendations?

If it's not to much, I'd love to know conditions at the east side lakes like heart like iced over completely, amount of snow down by he lake. A general guesstimate would be helpful. I'm headed up next weekend.

Bob Rockwell posted photos from a Kearsarge Pass Trail hike on 4/26, so they're a couple of weeks old.
