Day 3 - Yosemite National Park


You can make it up Half Dome in one long day, but also consider spending the night camping near the trail intersection with the John Muir Trail to beat the hordes and have the summit to yourselves. The Ahwahnee is the definitive Yosemite dining experience, with a sumptuous spread.

Day 5 - Yosemite


You can quickly leave the driving tourists behind at Tuolomne Meadows and head along along the beautiful Lyell Canyon, following the crystal clear Lyell Fork of the Tuolomne River. You don't have to hoof it all the way to Donohue Pass -- several miles in should give you a good taste.
