For those folks looking for a more direct route from Northern California to Lone Pine/Mt. Whitney please note the following.
From the Sierra Wave.net web site:
"Tioga Road and the east entrance gate to Yosemite National Park remains closed. Park road crews continue to clear snow and make road repairs."
So, I think this announcement means that Hwy 120 is open from Hwy 395 to the gate to Yosemite, but no further.
Yosemite Park web site confirms, Tioga road (Hwy 120) through Yosemite Park is not open, and that "There is no estimated opening date".
