Driving through via Tioga Road which opened on May 31st the day before we arrived. This is an awesome drive with great views but it is closed most of the year due to snow.
Yosemite Valley is another awesome highlight, except for the many mosquitos.
The Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias is also a very humbling experience. These are some really BIG trees.

Best Way To Get Around:
A vehicle is the best way to get around. There is no gas available in Yosemite Valley. We saw several people on motorcycles and this looked like a very fun way to ride through the mountains.
