We (an active couple in our 60s) will be leaving Oakland mid-morning on a Saturday in mid-July. We want to be close to Yosemite to go in on a Monday (yes, we have reservations). We have thought about taking 108 to Mono Lake for a stay Sat.- Sun. and then coming in the east side of the NP on Mon. We would like to know if this is a good idea or if we should we plan these two days some other way. Thanks so much for any advice!
P.S. We've been to Tahoe twwice already so no interest to to that way.
