It’s something to think about. People are dying to get out of town. North Rim Grand Canyon has been talked about on here for years. It’s @ 7k feet, so would be cooler but dry. There are a couple 2-tracks that lead right to the rim in sagebrush and no tree cover, a saving grace for my new plastic Euro View windows. Depending on the time of year, later in July or August we might see afternoon T-storms, a plus in this dry area. The only downside would be if the USFS decides to do a prescribed burn. That has ruined some TC outing in the early fall to this locale.
What ever you choose, it must have a lot of space, depending on how many TCA-er’s want to attend.
There is Dunderberg Road on the East flank of the Sierra Nevada’s. It’s down a graded dirt road @ 8K feet and has a commanding, 260 degree view of Nevada. There are actually several places to camp in the area. The turnoff to get there is at Conway Summit on hwy 395, uphill from Mono Lake. I would say 15-18 campers would be max for the campsite I’m thinking of. Great Cell service since the tower is at Conway Summit. There is not a lot of flat in the high reaches of the mountains.
What about the forest just east of Flagstaff? Plenty of room there and at elevation.
As advised above, The Bristlecone Pine area of the Inyo and White Mountains are near 10K feet with some large areas to circle the wagons.
I’d be up for any of these.
