My wife and I are planning to travel from LA up to SF in September, over two weeks, and we're mainly staying on the central coast/ Big Sur area.
However, we also intend to spend two nights in Yosemite, and I'm just trying to get a handle on distances so we don't spend too much time in the car.
We would both really like to fit in a trip over the Tioga Pass to Mono Lake, but can anyone could tell us whether we can reasonably get to Bodie in the same day, heading back to Yosemite that day, or would we need to spend a night near there ie: Lee Vining. And if we need to spend the night, does anyone have any good ideas for somewhere to stay?
Also, from getting back from Yosemite to SF, are we looking at around 4 hours drive? It's kind of hard to tell from the map!
Many thanks for any advice
