I am looking for advice in regards to Yosemite itinerary and lodging. Our family of 4 with 2 teenage boys will be in the park 3 1/2 days the first week of July. Starting our trip in SF, and also have 2 days allotted for Montery area. Planned on doing the loop "clockwise" (SF-Yosem-Monterey) primarily because it seems to be a shorter drive to the nearest airport for our return flight if we end in Monterey vs. Yosem.(flying Southwest so Fresno isn't an option). If we stick to this plan (but am open to changing to counterclockwise), in what order should we visit the various areas of the park, and where (area, not which specific facility) should we sleep each night in order to maximize our time? We don't mind staying in 2 or 3 different locations if we need to.
A rough idea of our interests, knowing we'll have to narrow down some things:
Bicycle rental in Yosem Valley
Glacier Point/ Sentinal Dome Trail
Toga Pass Rd to Tuolumne Meadows
May Lake/mt. Hoffman Trail and/or Lembert Dome
Thank you in advance for your time and input!
