Report: We drove through all of Yosemite from Tioga pass to HWY 41. Snow and ice were pressent but off the roads. There was a good chance of ice at night at runoffs in the higher elevations. Glacier Point was the best for scenic views. The campgrounds were already full, I would reserve ahead of time. The mosquitos were bad in the lower valley already. Pack your lunch unless you want to pay dearly. The Ahwahnee Lodge requires coat, tie type dress with Prime Rib at $30.00. Snaack foods and drinks are available in limited places. My suggestion for the next guy- take plenty of film, keep your eyes peeled, and take your time. You'll never see any place as beautiful.

Report: We have camped in the Valley several times in our Motorhome, it was always great. We go before schools are out and bring our bikes so we don't need to drive, we also take the bus when we want to go somewhere in the evening they come by often and stop at all the campgrounds.

Report: We did a 50 mile trip early this July, entering the park at Fernandez Pass and leaving at Post Peak Pass. We camped at Breeze Lake, lower Ottoway Lake and at the upper end of the Triple Peak Fork. We had an awesome time, but pestered by mosquitos (except during some brief and lengthy rain storms). We started at the Fernandez trailhead and camped the first night at Lillian lake. The passes (Fernandez, Merced, Red Peak, and Post Peak) provided great views and wonderful photos. A great trip.
