The only  caveat I would have with this is that I find it easier to hike 
south -  with the wind - rather than north, into its teeth, while walking 
through  the Great Basin.

I don't remember too many very windy days through the basin, if any, but it  
was hot.  One time I placed my watch/thermometer/altimeter in the sun as we  
rested under a tarp for shade.  In less then 5 minutes the face was  black.  In 
a few minutes it cooled down and said 137*  Of course it  wasn't that hot, 
but still....
Another thing to consider in 05 when i hiked the JMT south, the sun always  
seemed to be in my eyes.  Anyone else find that a problem?
