Rhododendron run Dave?
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.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

...COOL AND SHOWERY WEATHER FOR MEMORIAL DAY INTO NEXT WEEK...

A DISTURBANCE MOVING THROUGH NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ON MEMORIAL DAY WILL
DEEPEN A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM PRESENTLY OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST.
THIS WILL BRING COOL AND UNSETTLED WEATHER TO THE INTERIOR OF
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA FOR THE MEMORIAL DAY HOLIDAY. A CHANCE OF
SHOWERS ACROSS THE AREA CONTINUES THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK
AND POSSIBLY BEYOND AS ADDITIONAL DISTURBANCES MOVE THROUGH.

DAYTIME HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE AROUND 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL
ON MEMORIAL DAY THEN GRADUALLY WARM THROUGH THE WEEK. HIGHS ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEK.

HIKERS...BACKPACKERS AND OTHER OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS ARE ADVISED TO
BE PREPARED FOR THE MUCH COOLER AND MORE UNSETTLED WEATHER FOR
EARLY NEXT WEEK. CONDITIONS MAY BE QUITE WET AT TIMES...
ESPECIALLY IN THE NORTHERN SIERRA NEVADA. SNOW LEVELS WILL REMAIN
HIGH BUT SOME ACCUMULATION IS LIKELY ACROSS THE HIGHER PEAKS.
