    Default Yosemite is using a rolling 21 day lottery.

    I'm in the Yosemite lottery and am denied every day on the 21 day rolling lottery anyone planning a Muir trail hike south want to add each other on permits.or I would do other sections south of bishop. I'll even do the high sierra route as a last option. At least that route can be done without an extra permit for whitney

    Looked at that bit to get to trailhead from lone pine would be a hitch probably as I don't have plan to get a car. I thought a shuttle might work but it's gotta be reserved and it's a tad pricey

    The wife and I went NOBO out of Cottonwood Pass and we highly recommend it also.

    We scheduled a shuttle with the Lone Pine Chamber of Commerce for a very reasonable rate.

    I'll check with them thanks. I can get from L A to lone pine and back from bishop no problem so all I wanted was a shuttle up to cottonwood

    I also went Northbound out of Cottonwood Pass. There is a website where one can share shuttle rides and I found Sherpa Max to be very good about trying to get folks to share the rides up (and the cost). Getting the permit from Inyo is a breeze compared to the lottery. You probably will have to make some decisions about altitude sickness prevention, but there are solutions. You go from Lone Pine to 10k in the shuttle and then likely will be on Whitney on Day 3, at 14.5k.

    Decided bishop to Whitney this trip. Easy permit. I'll get Yosemite from the south next year
