I'm lookin to take a little 5-day roadtrip from Northern California out to Great basin National Park. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions about where to stay and if Memorial Day is a good weekend to go. I'm looking to stay in Ely, but it's 60 miles away and I don't want to make that drive three days in a row. Is there anywhere decent to stay in Baker?
My other question is when does the Wheeler Peak scenic drive typically open all the way up? I'm not sure how much snow they have out there this year.
Also, on the way home I would like to come via US-6 through Tonopah and back into California, anything good to check out along this route?
