Today we forded a half dozen creeks that were knee high – annoying to get wet shoes, but no big deal in the end. We passed by the Mt Whitney side trail (many hikers do that, but we did it 2 years ago and have little interest). We went over the Bighorn plateau which is probably our favorite spot/best views in all of the Sierras. The we camped a few miles shy of Forester pass, which is 13k ft and is the highest point on the pct. We have some info that the pass is clear on the south side and snowy but easily navigable on the north side.
