Stay safe

A high mountain environment containing some of the snowiest places in the US. During winter you should always carry tire chains in your car and know how to use them.

In summer during the North American Monsoon, thunderstorms often build up near the crest of the Sierra Nevada, particularly during late afternoon. It is unwise to be in a high, treeless place during a thunderstorm. If hiking far in summer, it's a good idea to carry a light rain jacket just in case.

Mormons, if they strictly follow church teachings, don't drink, are socially conservative and tend to have large families. They can also be well-travelled and fluent in foreign languages because many men are sent as missionaries to nations all around the world. The doctrine of polygamy is officially disowned.
