We will be at Yosemite on May 22nd around 3p.m. until May 23rd around 6p.m.
I estimate we will arrive Yosemite Valley Lodge around 3p.m. on the 23rd, what would you suggest we have time to take in for a couple hours? I was thinking it would be nice for the kids to swim in the pool - is it even warm enough to do that in late May?
I was thinking the lower falls trail - which looks fairly close or a cruise around one of the loops either with YARTS or our own vehicle. Or some unique vistas at sunset?
* which drive do you recommend in 2 hours or so? Should we drive around for neat views? If so, should we drive or should we take YARTS (if it's still runing then)
* Lower falls trail? Is this do-able in 2 hours or so.
* Other ideas?
* Although I know we likely could see a bear, I don't particularly want to run into one so if doing some of this at this time of day increases our chances because of low crowds or whatever, would like to know that!
* Any suggestions the next day? We can stick around until 5 or 6p.m. and will get an early start at 7 or 8a.m.
