I'm planning a trip for 3 weeks starting near the end of September, flying into San Fran and out from Phoenix.
The first stop on the way is Yosemite and heading from there towards Vegas, probably via Death Valley. I gather the Tioga pass may or may not be open at that time of year, so I was hoping to plan an extra stop to make the a drive the long way round feasible. If Tioga pass is closed is one of the routes round North of that likely to be open? If so, I could book somewhere around Mono Lake / Mammoth Lakes area. Any recommendations for somewhere to stay in this area?
