We were wondering if we could get some advice on a trip we're currently planning. We've already had help from another forum and stumbled across this one which is great!
Basically we're travelling to California/Nevada for 16 nights mid may to beginning June. Our current route is this
(driving down the coast to LA)
If the Tioga Pass is shut (we'll be travelling Memorial Day Weekend)
South Lake Tahoe
The difference between the two routes is around 7 hours it seems - not sure what this would actually be taking into consideration traffic and so on.
Our main questions are - is this feasible? And does anyone have any recommendations of a stop off point between Vegas and Yosemite East/South Lake Tahoe. We were looking at Mammoth lakes but as it's our honeymoon want somewhere a bit special to hide away for a couple of days to escape memorial day traffic!
Another question for anyone that has seen Yosemite - if we travel to the East side, is it worth going to the West Entrance as well? (and by worth I mean worth the extra few hours!)
Or are we better off seeing one entrance and having more time there rather than try to pack it all in?
Thanks in advance! And apologies for all the questions!
