Hi all, I have a trip Kearsarge Pass to Whitney and return Sept 2-10. I'm looking to find out what the water conditions are along the JMT for this section. Any observations would be awesome! Thanks! Brad

Bubbs creek, but some sections are not easily accessible form the JMT.
Lakes on the South side of Forester
Tyndall creek junction
Wallace creek junction
Guitar lake (the last reliable source)

Other smaller streams may or may not be dry, and I would not rely on information posted weeks before your trip. There will be North bound folks on the trail - they will have the most current info.

This is a good list, there used to be a tarn on the north side of Forester (just under a mile from the pass) has that dried up? Might be worth mentioning if it hasn't. The note on Bubbs is important, a lot of folks assume they can reach the upper creek from the JMT but many folks don't realize that.
