I'm having similar thoughts regarding an earlier start although part of it is probably my desire to get on the trail before the end of August ... but I already have some non refundable commitments booked along with a reserved permit. I'm not too worried about water, but more so about potential fires and related air quality issues.
I am entertaining the idea of a "training" hike in the Eastern Sierra in July ... perhaps the South Lake to North Lake loop ...
