I was wanting some advice about driving from Las Vegas to Yosemite Valley and then to san francisco. We will be leaving Las Vegas hopefully around 9am and ideally spend 2nights in Yosemite [or enroute to Yosemite] before heading and arriving in San Fran by the 4th day.
Is it recommended that we should stay a night somewhere between Las Vegas and Yosemite valley and if so where? We want to stay in Yosemite Valley on the second night and hopefully that morning do a hike around the area. Is the itinerary too jam packed?
this is what we are imagining:
Day 1 : leave las vegas 9am, ??stay somewhere enroute to Yosemite Valley
Day 2: drive out to Yosemite vallet, tunnel view or hike to see El Capitan, sleep in Yosemite Valley
Day 3: Leave Yosemite Valley to San Fran
Do we need an extra day?
We will be using rental car, so any information or tips would be much appreciated
Thank you so much in advance!
