It is kind of late, but I stumble upon this great website and thought better to ask question before trip. I am driving on Sep 30 early morning by standard car (Rental car, don't know make and model) from Inland empire to Yosemite and staying at Wawona hotel. I will bw staying 2 days in Wawona. Mapquest is suggesting I-5 to CA 99, CA 41. What are the spots not miss in Yosemite? My wife and 2 kids (10 yrs old son and 5 yrs old daughter) will be with me.
2nd October, I am planning to take Tioga pass to Mammoth lake and staying night at Mammoth lake. I have been driving last 10-15 years but not on mountain roads. After reading many posts that this will be steep drive, I am little scared. I have driven Ortega highway from OC to Lake Elsinore.
3rd oct I will drive back to Inland empire from Mammoth laske via US 395, I will have plenty of time on 3rd, Please suggest good spots on US 395 and Mammoth Lake.
I will appreciate your inputs.
