This will be my 2nd visit here (1st time around 2013). I did not get to do much their last time as I only had about 1 day and glad to be there a bit longer, although not ideal. Dates would be 8/16-8/18 with the half day on the 18th
Staying at Yosemite Bug Rustic Mtn. Resort on the 15t , due to its location and price (also need a kitchen to cook meals for a few days). Seems to be about an hour from the Valley sans traffic. Just not sure if I should stay there the following night based on my itinerary
After research, reading other posts and what I remember I was thinking doing this...
8/8: Yosemite Valley
-Tunnel/Glacier point views
-Sentinel dome hike (shorter version)
-just enjoy the valley and wildlife
-Bridalveil falls by 7:30am
-Tuolumne Meadows, not sure which hike yet?
-Tenaya lake for a dip
So my questions are, I have another half dayish before I head up to Lake Tahoe....
-What would you suggest here for a morning hike/activity into early afternoon?
-Thought of dinner at Ahwahnee but I know there is a bit of a dress code and after all that hiking day 1 I am not sure without a shower I should be eating anywhere!!!
-With day 2 being mostly in the east end of the park, should I look into staying somewhere else such as by Mammoth Mtn? It is a good 2 hr drive+ from the Meadows back to my potential lodging
-Is using a tube going down the Merced river worth it? If so, Id have to adjust plans a bit.
-I am pretty much a sunrise to sunset person when it comes to activities, so I do not mind going into the evening with hikes etc.
-I will be at SEKI NP earlier this trip so going to Mariposa Grove area was something I planned to leave out, or at least thought I should
Any help would be greatly appreciatedEdited: 25 July 2021, 22:04
