My first post here :) I am planning a road trip from vegas to SFO in early june covering death valley, sequoia, kings canyon and yosemite on the way over the course of 8 to 9 days. I am hoping that Tioga pass will be open by then but I am confused as to what route I would take since taking Tioga pass would mean not visiting Kings canyon and Sequoia NP. I am hoping to cover Mono lake and Mamooth lakes as well. I am a landscape photographer and that will be my primary focus. I was also thinking about spending a day or two in SFO.
I would love to get some help and insights from experienced experts on:
(1) the day split ups for the trip
(2) Most efficient route to take to cover these beautiful places.
(3) Any recommended accommodations (I will look into the lodges inside the park as well)
Thanks in advance.
