It's very steep drive. Depending on the power of your car it takes about 30 to 40 minutes. Maybe less during the day but take your time at night. It's not only steep but a lot of tight turns. No street lights so be extra careful!

Not that far, only about 25 minutes up the Whitney Portal road, going past the Alabama Hills. :-)

Did you already get your permit? If you're going before November 1, you need to have that.
