Hi Arch, and thanks for the heads-up about the snow. I thought it might be a problem, but thought I'd wait until closer to the time to worry about it.

I THINK we'll be heading for Death Valley via I-70 and Las Vegas first. Our destination is a wedding in Fresno on the 26th. Plan A is to drive over the top of Yosemite if it's still open that week, and then down to Fresno, but we are flexible enough to be able to go around through Bakersfield if the high route is not available.

My sister's in Porterville, so we'll come back the southern route towards Grand Canyon and Monument Valley for our return.

Can't wait to go.

Where are you staying while in Fresno?

The Fresno Elks have several sites available and there is a RV place on Blackstone.

Tioga and Glacier Point Roads Opening & Closing Dates - Yosemite National Park Some history on closing/opening.

Driving over the top is a pretty view....however it is best to know how to go down mountains without burning out your brakes.

Sounds like a fun trip.

Wow, Arch, you are AWESOME, that's a great link. It looks like (historically, anyway) we'd be able to go over the top Oct. 23ish, probably would want to park in the Valley, should be able to get a spot on a weeknight that time of year, yes? If that looks good, maybe we'd adjust our outbound route to get there more quickly then catch Death Valley coming back east after the wedding.

As far as Fresno area goes, hadn't gotten that far yet. We'll want to be in the vicinity of the wedding venue at Wolfs Lake Park in Sanger. Thought maybe I'd check with the people there, unless you have another great idea up your sleeve.

Thanks a bunch for the help!

Probably able to get a spot during the week without too much trouble near Yosemite.

As for the wedding....check with your people in Sanger for an RV spot.

As for visiting Death Valley....pretty neat in the spring when things are blossoming but a whole lot of nothing after that....so putting it on the headed home list is probably a good idea.
