We currently have 2 nights booked in Curry Village on for the memorial days weekend, but need some advice please.
We are staying at Sonora on the Thursday (22nd) and then planning on heading into the park first thing on Friday morning. The question that we have is when we should leave the park? We have to be in Las Vegas for 6pm on Sunday night for a concert, I think we have two options:
1) Get up first thing on Sunday morning and start the long drive to LV in one go
2) Leave Yosemite on Sat night and spend a night in a stop over (somewhere like Bishop?) and then have less of a drive on Sunday and maybe go via Death Valley?
I suppose the deciding factor would be the traffic.... when would be the best try and leave YNP on memorial weekend in terms of traffic... would it be Sat night or Sunday morning (and what would be the best time to leave?)
Either way we would still be getting two full days in the YNP but am hearing horror stories of traffic on the this particular weekend (it is the only time we could fit it into our itinerary).
