The mountains of the Sierra Nevada are incredible. We have both been through this section multiple times and love it. The hiking can be hard, but is some of the most rewarding in the US. In the early summer when we passed through, all the passes were snow covered. While this is not atypical since PCT hikers are in this section earlier than most JMT hikers, the snow pack does make for slower, wetter travel. It also adds a beauty, a bit of a winter wonderland, as we call it. The Sierra Nevada are simply magical.
