Please could someone help me. I got some brilliant advice from the Cal forum but could do some more specific info. This is where we got up to on the Cal forum -->
£"Aug 6: leave SF. Stay IN Yosemite.
Aug 7: leave Yosemite Valley. Exit Tioga Pass. Stay along Hwy 395.
Aug 8: Continue South on 395, then head east through DVNP. Arrive Las Vegas.
Yosemite forum page: tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g61000-i315 When you open this page, look on the right side for the relevant Top Questions & Trip Ideas. Read. Then repost. There are some folks who only help on the Yosemite forum; they won't see any Yosemite questions here on your California state driving itinerary thread. So please repost there. I don't want you to miss out on their valuable advice! In your new thread on that forum, let folks know that your driving from SF in the morning and that you're heading out the next morning. Share who is in the group and more about your travel style (a short hike, a romantic stroll, a great photo op, love nature, looking forward to seeing HUGE trees, views are ideal, whatever.)

Is it bad if I stay near mammouth on 6th and then go to Yosemite park bits to do stuff? And on my final day before driving to DV stay near Lone pine or something?
