Google map give 2 routes: one (CA-120E) is by going through Yosamite, Cedar city, the other is going south via Bakersfield, Las Vegas (LV) and up north again to Bryce. The Yosamite route is shorter distance-wise. Google map gives about equal driving time for both routes (~12hr), but Yahoo map actually pegs an extra hour (~13hr) since it goes through winding roads in high Sierra. Since we travel around Thanksgiving time, will there be snow in Nov for that part of high Sierra (Yosamite, Mono Lake), Any chance of road closure around Nov? The reason I ask is that we will be going to Las Vegas after we are done with Bryce/Zion before heading back to bay area so I like to try a different route when we go to Bryce, plus the benefit of visiting Mono Lake on the way. But I am kind of worried about the weather/road condition if I drive through Yosamite during Thanksgiving time.
