am planning a trip to the west coast this Nov/dec. will be visiting Yosemite in mid December. intends to stay somewhere outside the park (cause we will be driving from LA to Yosemite) and visit the park the next morning. read that the nearby places will be oakhurst etc... also read that tire chains may be required depending on the weather conditions. in the event that tire chains r indeed required, will the information be readily available on the internet?
and if yes, we will have to abandon the plan to drive into the park. if that happens, is there any public transportation we can take to bring us into the park from say, Oakhurst?
