We are planning our road trip for this summer and for part of the schedule planned to do the following
Day 1 Drive Las Vegas to Death Valley - Stay Furnace Creek
Day 2 Drive to Mammoth Lakes
Day 3 See Mammoth Lakes area
Day 4 Drive Tioga Pass
We have left it too late and cannot get into Furnace Creek on our preferred travel date. Where is the next best place to stay between Furnace Creek and Mammoth ?
