What should I expect for Sat-Sun in the Minarets area?
Partial cloud cover during the am and rain/hail/thunderstorms in the pm?

Just use the many weather links folks posted in this thread: http://www.highsierratopix.com/communit ... f=1&t=7778
It is showing a slight chance of thunderstorms so most likely you will be fine, just set
up your tent accordingly, and stay off peaks, ridges, or wide open meadows when
there are thunderheads in the vicinity.
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.
