I disagree with you--the other thread is different. I could tell you what my favorite or least favorite passes are but best or worst? They are all good they get you where you want to go. ... Another favorite is Glen because my wife and I went over it on our first date--how about that for a first date--3 nights and part of 3 days doing the Rae Lakes Loop together. (the first day's hike we did separately because I couldn't start until after work and I didn't catch up until 10 PM at Junction Meadow)
Mike, what a great first date! Glenn is one of my favorites, too, because it was my first high-sierra pass. Just out of college a group of us hiked up Bubbs Creek to Vidette Meadow and took a day trip to the top of Glenn Pass, and I remember being completely awe-struck by the rugged alpine scenery, the beautiful Rae Lakes beyond (which I didn't get to for nearly 40 years!), and the apparently impassible wall we saw when we first popped over the lip of the tarn that's at the north-side base of the final switchbacks. There was a young(er) hiker resting at the top who quoted Muir at us: "Man must labor for beauty as well as for bread." Great pass!
