We are flying to Fresno and then driving the next morning on 180 to the northern entrance to the Park (near Kings Canyon). Our original plan is to see the sights in Sequoia, spend one night at the Wuksachi Lodge, and then continue out the southern end of the park stopping at the caves and Morro rock and ending up in Visalia. The next day we drive to Yosemite. Now we are wondering if it makes more sense to just backtrack to the northern entrance after our night in the park and go back to Fresno. It would be closer to Yosemite and we would avoid the twisty road from the park to Visalia. We also want to have a nice dinner that evening -- what makes more sense, Fresno or Visalia?
