"I'd love to share it if someone here can explain how to take something from Google Earth and post it up here on the discussion board (probably in link format?)..."

Billy, one alternative is to take a screen shot of the Google Earth map. There are some free utilities that will capture as a JPEG image. Then you embed that image with your posting.

Do the JMT crowds thin out after Labor Day?

Or do you run into bad weather if you go in September?

Is the best weather IMHO in the Sierra. Never a worry about crowds on the SHR but it could matter on the JMT

"Or do you run into bad weather if you go in September?"

+1 to what Greg said. There is no better time to be in the Sierra. After Labor day the crowds thin out a lot, the weather in general is about as close to perfect as it gets in the mountains, and there is an energy in the air that is hard for me to articulate; it just has to be experienced. All that said, the weather can turn suddenly at any time of the year, so always go at least minimally prepared.
