Visiting Yosemite in early April

Jump to last reply

Hello,

We are travelling from Las Vegas to San Francisco, have 3 days to complete the trip and want to see Death Valley followed by Yosemite as it has been recommended.

After research it appears you have to have tyre chains (not possible as we have a hire car).

I am looking for recommendations of how best to experience Yosemite...
-stay in a nearby town reached without snow chains and get a bus/coach trip into the park (any suggestions here)
-See how far we can get along 41/140 (assuming you recommend approaching the park from the west and not the east)

Any suggestions here would be fantastic.

Thanks
