We are leaving SF for Yosemite on a Tuesday morning and will just drive to get there asap. We can't decide if we need to leave SF really early, say 6.30am or if we'd be ok waiting until 9am to miss the worst of the rush hour. We realise that it will still be busy after 9am, but would it be significantly quieter going earlier around 6.30am?
Our plan is to visit the Mariposa Grove first. Hubby will have a disabled placard so we will follow the tour tram with the car. We will need to find lunch somewhere (thought about taking a picnic into the Mariposa Grove) and we are then heading for Glacier Point.
Hubby is going to wait for me while I hike Sentinel Dome and hopefully Taft Point and we'll stay at GP for sunset. We are booked into the Lodge at the falls that evening.
My preference is to get off really early and stop for breakfast once we'd got out of the city, but hubby would appreciate a later start as we'd have been up early the previous day. Could you settle the dispute please and advise one way or the other LOLEdited: 30 July 2011, 09:05
