It's not just the snow. Last year on June 30th I was unable (didn't want to try alone) to cross the South Fork of Sheep Creek which is north of Lemhi and south of Big Hole Pass. http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?trailname=10902 Spring stream run off is more dangerous than rotting snowpack. It sounds like you are headed south from Lemhi. Good luck! Mini Mart

We'll be starting at Lemhi Pass Friday, July 1. I have not been able to get definitive info on the snow conditions, though a ranger out of Leadore said the snow level is at 8500 feet. I will be posting our spot location on my journal daily at www.postholer.com/Jo. Under normal conditions we travel 20+ miles a day, so if we appear to be going a lot slower you will know we have substantial snow, we're lost, or some combination thereof! I will try to give more info, if and when we reach Lima in about a week. We fly to Missoula, MT tomorrow and will be on the trail, hopefully, Friday morning. First location posting Friday night.
