Salt Lake City to Yosemite then to Yellowstone

Jump to last reply

Help! I am trying to plan a trip to see a few sites in Yosemite (sequoias, yosemite falls, and el capitan) and made my original plans to go to Yellowstone (where I usually go every year). I will be flying into Salt Lake City. I got a great deal on a car rental for 7 days in SLC ($159 unltd miles) and am hoping to drive from SLC to Yosemite -- then to Yellowstone where I'd like to spend a few days before heading back to SLC.

Can this trip be done in 7 days? (I don't mind staying in a different place each night)
If so,
--what is best route to take? (through Ely?, through carson city?)
-- where is best place to stay (just need a place to sleep with coffeemaker) near Yosemite? (There is a room at the Days Inn-Oakhurst)
Can I see the three things I mentioned above in Yosemite in one day?

I like to view lakes, mountains, bears, and birds. I cannot hike anything strenuous and don't need to stay at fancy hotels.

My travel dates are in June 2011.

Thanks,
