I am going to be headed to the june loop on july 7th. I have been checking the weather reports, but I am confused by them. Yahoo weather says the high is about 68 degrees, the lows in the 30s. But it says "feels like: 92*". SO my question is: Is it in the 90s or the 60s?

Thanks guys.

Here's one thought. As you may already know, when you are at high altitude ... in dry and thin air ... and the sun is coming through without the benefit of a filter (like smog ;>) ... it can feel like a 92 day. Move over into the shade, and it should feel very nice, balmy, and pleasant. I might go out on a limb and say, if a wind comes up in the afternoon (as often can happen), you might even need a windbreaker.

But ... WE ALL LOVE IT, RIGHT?

Weather changes fast in the sierras.. I've had days when I was sweating my *** off, by afternoon I was brushing snow off the tent. Bring layers of clothes, but mostly count on it being stupid hot by mid day.. June Lake loop isn't that high up.. so it does get warm there.
