      You wont have any difficulty hitching from WP to YV.
      As long as it is daylight, rides will be pleantiful
      plus you'll get a chance to meet some of the locals.
      I once hitched from Piute back to M Lakes with a local
      and we stopped at his favorite watering hole in
      Bishop- a tavern/bar across from what is now Galen
      Rowell's Mountain Light studio, had supper and a
      couple of beers (O'Doul for me since I was dehydrated
      and had to drive back to the bay area).
