If starting Mono Meadows, there is a bridge that crosses Illilouette and the first day crossing should not be a problem there... many other smaller crossings later up to Merced Pass but expect not anything that drastic.
Wait, what? There wasn't a bridge there in 2009...did they build one since then?
No, there is no bridge crossing Illilouette Creek if starting from Mono Meadow. However there is a bridge a few miles downstream just above the falls on the Panorama Trail.
