I ended up booking a place in oakhurst as it was not too far from the bass lake -which I wanted to do as part of my trip
I have been avoiding going to Yosemite for a long time now becuase of the winding roads and my motion sickness problem. Since I would be close to the South entrance, I think I will do it this time.
I will be in oakhurst for 3 nights - so day1 plan to go to bass lake. Day2 and day3 I could do Yosemite - am looking for ideas of what I can do in Yosemite on Friday Aug31 and Sep1 -with maybe a stomach for an hr and half of winding roads :)
