I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Yep, we got a ton of wet heavy snow!
Many of us have been so brainwashed over the years — by sheer repetition, rather than by either logic or empirical tests — that statistical disparities are automatically taken to mean discrimination, whether between races, sexes or whatever.

I concur. We were up there over the weekend and it rained and rained all Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The rain melted much of the snow at lake level. We drove up to Luther Pass and the snow was coming down very thick and heavy. It was your classic "Sierra Cement".
