Still 1.5 years out from going, but I thought I'd ask now anyway. Anyone use the Onion Valley CG (I think Sierra Kings does drops there) for resupply or how about Parchers Resort? Both are a-ways off trail, but still shorter than going all the way to town.
Also has anyone flown into and out of Reno? Thinking taking the bus to mammoth from Reno, then the Yarts to YNP (next day), and the bus all the way from Lone Pine afterwards.
