This will be our first trip to Yosemite and the USA so I am hoping I could receive some feedback / opinions / suggestions on my rough plan so far as we would really like to make the most of our time in Yosemite.
Day 1 -
Arrive at the south entrance mid afternoon. Visit Mariposa Grove. Will try to get parking here otherwise drive to Wawona and take shuttle. From personal experience, can anyone advise what our chances are of oarking at Mariposa Grove mid afternoon in September? Will then head to Curry Village via Bridalveil Falls and Tunnel View.
Day 2 -
Afternoon - Would there be enough time to do Glacier Point in the afternoon? If so, would it best to drive or take shuttle?
Evening - Sunset at Tunnel View. Again, should we drive or take a shuttle?
Day 3 -
Morning - Leave Curry Village for Death Valley via Tuolumne Meadows, Tioga Pass, Mono Lake, Lee Vining, Mammoth Lakes, Bishop, Lone PIne. Death Valley is primarily a bed to sleep in that night so we plan to spend majority of this day driving and stopping at sights.
Appreciate any feedback!
