The Whitney Trail is undergoing trail maintenance and not issuing walk-in permits. I was planning a Wednesday start. Food is at MTR. Dog is ready for the kennel. My gear is packed.
I could do Tuolumne to Whitney, which would be the easiest change.
Or I could go via Cottonwood Lakes, because I really like going south-to-north.
Anyone know the logistics of getting from Lone Pine to the Cottonwood Lakes TH?
Is it a good road?
With some cajoling and $$ would a local drive me up there?
