Re: Two Questions - Options To Acclimatize and Tioga Pass Resort
- I was looking into Tioga Lodge last year for my late June backpacking
trip inside Yosemite and they never responded either. When I did drive
past there, they were just starting to get things ready for opening.
Like the High SIerra Camps, everyone got a very late start b/c of the
April snows/late plowing. Not sure when they actually opened.
Someone mentioned TM Lodge and that would be good if you could get a
spot (or a campground spot). White Wolf is another option but a good
hr. down the road. Closer to Lee Vining, there are lots of FS camping
spots around the "lakes" including saddlebag and all at relatively good

Thanks in advance for any help that might be provided.
