Yosemite Itinerary 1.5 days in June

Jump to last reply

Am coming from India and am planning to have a driving holiday through California with my wife. My Itinerary would be
13th June (Thursday) Leave Las Vegas early morning- Drive via Death Valley scenic route and June Lake to Lee Vining before sunset- Sunset at Mono Lake

14th June (Friday)- 1. Sunrise- Mono lake again (Or should I try some other location)
Drive via Tioga Pass, Scenic route to Yosemite. Overnight at Yosemite View, El Portal.

2. Not sure about this itinerary. What do I see enroute. How much time for sites on the way.
3. Where should I be at the sunset- the only sunset I will see in Yosemite park. Should I be at the Tunnel view or Glacier Point. Also would like to try and see the moonbow at the Yosemite falls as on this day the moon does not set.

15th June (Saturday)- 4. Where should I be at the sunrise- Mirror lake or Glacier point. Being a Saturday, roads and park would be crowded after 9 am. Though, from the photos that I saw, the half dome gets sunlight in the 2nd half and is better for the sunset.
Wish to see a few sites till 1 pm. Have lunch and drive to Monterey for 2 nights.

I would like to see the 3 or 4 most famous waterfalls, Mariposa Grove- Giant siquoas, Tunnel view, Mirror lake, Glacier point.

Am keen on photography in the golden hours and would like to know the best places to be at sunrise and sunset ( Does the sun rise late in the valley because of high mountains)
Cannot figure out what should be my route and itinerary. What all can I see in the limited time that I have. Please help.
