Hi all first time on the site , have really enjoyed the great info and generous giving of information .
Just wondering if i could get some feed back on this drive .
We have 2 days to drive from vegus to yosemite , we r staying at yosemite west 4 3 nights travelling late sept 2009 in rental car with 2 adults and 3 boys aged 8 , 9 and 12 then on to san francisco.
I cant decide wether to go to mammoth and stay and then go over tioga pass ( if its open ) it sounds great and the drive through Fresno sounds a bit bland maybe . Would you go through death valley if going to mammoth .
Could we do the trip to mammoth fairly comfortably in the day and then same over tioga to yosemite west next day . R there hot springs to stop at along the way that are easily accessable .
Our kids get a bit of motion sickness so i gather that tioga would be not so good for that but if we have plenty of time to get to yosemite lodging before dark with easy driveing and stopping that might be ok .
We are used to driveing long distances in australia , we dont have big mountains so we are really keen to see some and tioga sounds the best way to do it .
I am sure these questions have been answered hundreds of times before but i am new to the site and only learning to find the relevant topics to read thanks to anybody who has the time to respond . andrew
