OK - so we love the great outdoors but... we're not the fittest family.
I'll have an octaganarian, one teen and two 10 year olds plus me & dh. Our OAP is probably the fittest amongst us so any arduous trails are out of the question :)
We love to amble, and enjoy good walks, gentle cycling but only up to 3 or 4 miles and hiking is not our thing. We spend lots of time messing about in rivers and having picnics, plus great scenery and nature are really important to us.
I'd love to see Yosemite but - I don't want to experience it in a car but I don't want hours of hiking either. As it's unlikely that we'll be passing this way again, I think it's also important to introduce it to the kids but don't know whether I've just got carried away with myself.
Do you think I'm kidding myself that we could still enjoy a day in Yosemite or do you think I should just drop it out of our plan? We'll be taking a few days to drive up from Vegas to San Fran then down to LA as part of a 3 week trip. So if it's not practial to enjoy it on this basis, I'll just start in San Fran, thru to LA and end in Vegas (if that makes sense).
Sorry - I'm not painting a great picture of our family, we are healthy and moderately active - honest....
Also as the plan stands currnently, we'll be hitting Yosemite the Friday of Labor Weekend. Will the Friday be as busy as the actual weekend?
Any tips appreciated :)
