Just wanted to get a feel for whether our itinerary is good, after having done a bit of research. We arrive in Yosemite from Lake Tahoe on Weds 23rd June and we are staying 3 nights in white wolf tent. We are hoping/assuming/crossing fingers that Tioga pass will be open by this point given the relatively mild winter... but does anyone have any more idea about this please?
Anyway, this is our plan. On the day we arrive, we won't have time to do much as we probably won't get in until at least midday (possibly later if we have stopped at Bodie). So I thought we could check out the short loop around Tenaya Lake, and then go and get set up at our tent. We could also then do the short hike at Toloumne meadows if we had time.
On day 2 (thursday) I was figuring that the valley might be a bit quieter than it would be on Friday, as more people might be there for a long weekend. So i thought Thursday we could do a hike from the Valley, having looked at the sights first. I was thinking of the Panorama trail perhaps, or possibly the Pohono trail if we fancied even more of a challenge.
Then on Friday I would really really like to do the Clouds Rest trail, weather permitting! We will be leaving on Saturday heading out on the Tioga road again towards Lone Pine. If we hadn't managed to do Toloumne Meadows when we arrived, we would do it before we leave on the saturday.
How does this sound? We are both in our twenties and very fit and active so I'm hoping the trails will not be too challenging for us. Does it sound like a good itinerary? The only thing I feel like we are missing is a visit to Mariposa Grove, but not sure where to fit that in.
Thanks for any advice or tips!
