Stream and Creek fording
Given that the 16/17 winter is proving to be quite prolific, what are the thoughts of everyone about stream and creek fords from Kennedy Meadows to Tuolumne Meadows?
I checked the CDEC snow survey site the other day and saw the Bond Pass snow sensor was reading 192 inches, Grace Meadow at 199, and Wilmer Lake at over 190. My trip is planned for August 11-19, which is pretty late in the season, but this is not a normal season.
This will be my first time on this trail, and I'm wondering if there are any particularly hairy fords that I will need to be careful about. I will obviously exercise caution, but I would like to mark on my map the ones that I should pay extra attention to.
