I am planning trip for mid-May. Looking back over past years opening dates for Tioga Road, I am planning on it being closed (and if it's open, I'll just be happy!).
I'm thinking about leaving Yosemite and going toward Lake Tahoe. I see on maps that there are a number of roads (highways 108, 4, 88, 50) that all run in a northeasterly direction toward Lake Tahoe. Some maps I look at have little notations "closed in winter" on these roads.
Are these roads subject to the same closures that Tioga Road is OR are they at elevations that would assure that they are passable in May?
