Easily a wonder of the world type of view. Makes me want more land put aside in the midst of suburban sprawl for future generations.

We were there the week of Sept 16 and the US120 was closed several days for snow. You should probably count on driving through Fresno. (FYI: The trip through Yosemite / Mono Lake still took me about 7 hours to get to Vegas.
