North Lake/South Lake to Evolution Valley

Post by giannamtgirl » Wed Aug 09, 2017 12:10 pm

Hoping to do the North Lake/South Lake into Evolution VAlley starting this weekend... but a bit worried about the snow and even more the river crossings. Does anyone have current updates on snow/rivers?
Thanks!

From what I have seen on the PCT2017 instagram hashtags, the area has patchy snow in the upper elevations. Maybe some standing areas on Muir Pass.

People are crossing the river in Evolution Valley in the meadows. Water is mid chest and slower. At the trail crossing is quite the view. You can scroll through here : https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/pct2017/
