Hi, need your advice about planning my trip:
We (me & my wife) arriive to Mariposa in the 11/9, and in the next day (12/9) I'll drive to Yosemite. I thougth about spenting the first day in Yosemite valley. in the end of day we'll stay at El portal, and I thoguht the day after (13/9) to travel to the east side of the park (Tioga Road, Lembert Dome, Mono lake) and then sleep in Oakhurst.
few question about the plan (just to mention, we are not from the hiking trpe but more then the viewpoint, and we are with a car there):
1. is it a good plan for two days in terms of times?
2. I'm afraid we'll be bored in the second day. since its september most of the falls are dry, and I'm not sure how much there is to see... I want to hear from other people who travled in the same time how was it and if 2 days is too much?
3. should I book already the night in Oakhurst? from one hand if we'll spend most of the second day in the park, I would like to have already a place near the park to stay. on the other hand in case we'll be bored, I prefer to leve and "cut" distances to Montery as much as I can (in that case, what are the chances to find a suitble place in this time of the year?
