[pct-l] Snow along the Southern JMT?

I was there the end of July.  The northern slope of Forester was
snow-free, (on the trail) and There was one 50' section of snow bisected
by the trail, (the trail was free of snow) near the top of Whitney.
Nothing to worry about!!  After seeing the north side of Forrester I can
imagine the troubles that snow near the top could cause - Definately a
"high pucker factor"!
