Can't argue with that route. It would be some of the best scenery in the Sierra.
When I was a kid, we camped at Crater Lake on the 4th of July. We woke up to 3 inches of snow, and couldn't even see the lake from the upper rim. At the time, we were disappointed we didn't get to the lake, but looking back it was an experience that taught me never to take weather for granted.
