Having had a good read of the forum I have soaked up plenty of great information but still a little unsure of where is best to stay to access the valley.
Planning on flying into SFO for a few days to then position close to Yosemite Valley to spend a day walking the Mist trail. I understand it should be do-able (freak weather taken into account) to get into the Valley and back without chains, however the natural routing between SFO and Yosemite is the 120 opposed to the 140. I'm aware that the 120 is a higher route, but the 140 adds an hour or so to travel time.
Would be grateful for some suggestions/advice!
