I'd like some suggestions - we want to break the drive to Yosemite into a couple days, second day ending around Oakhurst, so on our 3rd day, we can get to Mariposa Grove early. This is mid-week in mid-October. We have 3 nights in Yosemite Valley Lodge, and would like to travel back to Phoenix via Tioga Pass road, spending 2 nites. Thinking maybe Bishop after leaving Mono Lake area. I can't yet quite figure best towns outside LA area to stay overnight. Victorville on way up? Quite a few options, hoping someone who has done these routes before can offer suggestions. Trying to keep any single day drive under 400 miles. Thank you.
