          I had similar experiences on the Muir trail Ranch to Pinchot Pass
          stretch last week.

          Lots of mosquitoes near meadows and creeks. But even a little wind,
          or higher elevations, pretty well eliminated the problem. Campsites
          on slabs were fine because enough breeze would keep the mosquitos
          away. I think I slept every night with the mosquito netting left
          open.

            Just got back from a 17 day trip, There were mosquitos everywhere by the swarm. Deet only helped keep from biting, but still annoying. I used Ben's 100% and REI jungle juice, and repel 40%. Nothing seemed to keep them from swarming around me and attacking my face and eyes. According to the rangers, expect at least 2 more weeks of this.
