I am looking to take a road trip from San Fan to Yosemite then possibly on to Mono Lake then to death valley. Reading the posts it looks like the Tioga pass is going to be closed. Will the fact that this is not open make our journey too long and are we better missing out mono lake and by doing so will it reduced the travelling time to death valley. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we should do. we are visiting from England and going to a wedding in Santa Barbara otherwise we would have done this trip in the summer months.
