GG of TM to 10 Lakes

I want to do 10 lakes the last week in August coming for AZ. I want to make the trip mileage worth it. The TM shuttle is unreliable for the season. So I was thinking of starting at White Wolf to Pate, Return Creek, Glen Aulin, May lake or 1st lake in 10 Lakes, Grant lakes, then out. I know GG of TM will be warm has anyone done this and is it a crazy idea? I am open to suggestions but I want to hike 10 lakes area to fish and swim. I haven’t done that area. I am just looking to add some mileage and cover some more areas that I haven’t seen. I have looked at doing an out and back for Virginia Canyon, I am open to that as well. Any thoughts would be welcomed.

“I know GG of TM ”
do you mean the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne? Well yes it will be very hot, but it climbs to somewhat cooler elevations soon enough. Of course, climbing in 90+ degree temps is difficult. Still, the route runs by a river, so water is available.
But why? Why not go to Tuolumne meadows and plan a hike that stays at cooler elevations? Unless you’ve already seen everything in the area and want to complete a list.
Sorry if I’ve misunderstood you, but you mention Pate valley so I assume you mean the grand canyon etc.
