Ah yes... Hwy 120 between Benton and Lee Vining. Fun road - especially the dips section.

Love that area! I grew up there in Big Pine, so I'm quite familiar with White Mountain Road. Another road for someone who loves the twisties is Hwy 168 between Big Pine and Fishlake Valley. Going up / down Westguard Pass and then up / down Gilbert Summit on the other side of Deep Springs Valley is one of the twistiest roads with a lot of dips for good measure...

Most people would never know it, but as you drive through Deep Springs Valley on Hwy 168, you pass by one of the most exclusive colleges in the country - Deep Springs College. It's a two-year liberal arts college, with a total enrollment of 26 students...

If I remember what I've read before, the full-ride scholarship value is about $45,000/year.
