I received a call from the Inyo County Forestry Service regarding our permit for tomorrow. They said they are calling all permit holders who start their trips in the next few days, He said to check the Inyo County Forestry Facebook page for the most frequent updates. Really hoping the road opens. I'm sure like others we have been preparing for one year for this trip and have packed our gear last night and were so excited to head out tomorrow. Not to mention how heartbreaking it is to see the devastation wildfires cause. I'm assuming the road is closed to provide firefighters access and not because the fire is immediately near the Whitney portal?
