My initial itinerary (posted in Road Trips) was to drive from LA to Yosemite (25 May 14) in a day and stop off at Mariposa Grove. It has been suggested that I drive through Sequoia NP. Is this doable in a day? Ideally would want some stopping time and short hikes. I would approach on the 198 (windy roads don't phase me too much, we're used to them in the UK and I have driven the Hana Highway in Hawaii) and hopefully head all the way up to exit on the 180.
Then probably push the Mariposa Grove visit to a later day during the actual Yosemite stay.
Any comments much appreciated!
