From Yellowstone to Yosemite - HOW?

Jump to last reply

As part of our 30 day US round trip (http://www.fodors.com/community/united-states/road-trip-and-canyon-experts-out-there-please-help-a-beginner.cfm - thanks for all the great tips), I am now planning the part where we travel from Yellowstone (either West Yellowstone or Jackson) to Yosemite.

I really would appreciate some tips and suggestions on how to go about this part of our trip, how to break it up and where to stop on the way.

I got this very helpful suggestion from my other topic, and I would like to do it in two days (and two nights). It is even possible? Where would the natural night stops be?

"Not sure if you are coming from Jackson or Yellowstone before heading to Yosemite so just work your way to Idaho Falls, Idaho then take I-15 south. Since you will have already been to Salt Lake City, take I-86 to Twin Falls, Idaho. See the falls before heading south on Hwy 93 to Wells, Nevada. Take I-80 to Reno and then pick up Hwy 395 south to Lee Vining and enter Yosemite on Tioga Pass (hwy 120). I'd highly recommend taking a short detour on Hwy 50 over to Lake Tahoe.

Also, coming to Yosemite from this side, what would be a logical first day in Yosemite, and how could I work in Lake Tahoe in the itinerary? I plan on two days to get to the park, and two full days in the park (no in-park lodging found yet, so we will probably stay in Mariposa). First day will be entering the park from the east and exiting west in Mariposa. Second day will be Mariposa - Yosemite - Mariposa.

Thanks in advance
