Depending on how you come out (what route) a loop through Death Valley would also be good this time of year. Staying at Furnace creek allows you the comforts of a resort like atmosphere and you can still camp. More rustic but still with alot of good riding is Panamint Spring on the western side outside of DV.
If you go over thanksgiving go there and they will feed you for free, just make a small donation.
