Planning to travel over the Memorial Day weekend, and trying to decide between staying in Oakhurst and Mariposa. We will be coming in from LA, so understand that Oakhurst is closer. But as we are planning to stay for 3 nights, I am thinking it may be easier in Mariposa to cut down on daily driving back n forth. What do you recommend? Also, what drive to and from the Valley will be more scenic?
Also, what would you recommend for a 2.5 days trip there. I am thinking one day in Valley, perhaps another driving to and from Tuolomne Meadows? What else?
