Looking for condition update for Humphreys Basin

Post by highsierraguy » Fri Jul 12, 2019 5:02 pm

Hi all!
I am hoping I am posting this in the right section. I have a 5 day trip planed through the Humphreys Basin the first week in August. I was wondering if anyone has current information on snow conditions in that area? Our plan is to make a loop around Puppet Pass. Thanks in advance for any information.

link works, but it is slow. Not sure if the dates are right, but Upper Deso Lk looked frozen as did Puppet mostly. And the area is very snowy.

July 11th image. Looks like it has been updated with the 12th and 13th after I initially posted.
