I'm staying in San Fran in early Sept Mon, Tues & Wed night then picking the car up on the Thursday about 11am to travel towards Yosemite.
I'm staying in El Portal so probably go straight to the hotel to check in. Is there anything worthwhile visiting on my way out of San Fran to El Portal? How long does it take to travel to El Portal from Union Square area?
My inital plan was to stay overnight then go into Yosemite National park on the Friday but then I need to travel to Bridgeport on the Friday night.
After reading some suggestions on here i'm now changing my mind and i'm thinking about dropping my bags off at the hotel then going straight into the park. I suppose it depends on what time I arrive.
Can you please give me some ideas on what to go and see that afternoon (Glacier Point sunset?). I'm then thinking about spending the Friday using the shuttle bus then leave sometime in the afternoon to travel along the Tioga Pass then up to Bridgeport.
Anyone know roughly how long that drive will take?
Thanks in advance for your help
