I didn't know they close down DVNP after Easter. I do know that the Furnace
Creek Golf Course is open year 'round and you can have a round of golf in
July on one of the cool 127 degree days. I believe proof of a will and
testament is required before starting the round. :-)
As for Mono Lake. If I recall correctly, that's where the Clint Eastwood
movie High Plains Drifter was filmed as the "fictious" town of Lago.
Hope you have a good time in the desert.
