We will be staying for three nights at Wuksachi lodge mid October. We will be coming from staying three nights in Yosemite. We won't have time to do the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway on the way into the park if the road is even still open. We always seem to linger in Yosemite, and with the shorter days we want to get to Wuksachi before dusk. My question is, is it worth going back on one of our days in the park and doing the scenic drive or should we concentrate on Sequoia? When leaving the park will there be delays on 198 due to construction or is it worth driving around, we're headed for Morro Bay?
