I've been planning a road trip to California July 27-Aug 6 from our home in New Mexico (our own car). It is just my husband and I (50's semi-active). We can camp or we can stay in high end lodging. I have not been to Yosemite since I was 6 months old and husband never. Not huge hikers, 1+ mile or so. Mostly looking for photos!
While searching for lodging I stumbled upon a family room at Yosemite Lodge for Aug 1, so grabbed it and now that is the lodging we will plan around. I think I got lucky from what I have read.
Here's our plan... Need help with day 7 and 8!!! Thanks.
Day 1 Jul 27 - NM to AZ
Day 2 Jul 28- 1 night in Vegas - This is my husband's wish. Staying at one of the new hotels. One night will be plenty for us.
Day 3 Jul 29- Vegas to Lee Vining. Mono Lake, Bodi Ghost Town. Any suggestions for lodging?
Day 4 Jul 30 - Tioga Pass. Crane Flat CG
Day 5 Jul 31 - Tall trees, rivers etc. Crane Flat CG
Day 6 Aug 1 - Yosemite Valley - Yosemite Lodge
Day 7 Aug 2 - What to do??? Yosemite or to Sequoia?
Day 8 Aug 3 - Sequoia?
Day 9 Aug 4 - 1/2 way home - Kingman AZ
Day 10 Aug 5 Home
