Lots of great advice here. Yosemite is special, and one of my favorite places. I could go there every weekend and be stoked.

If you are going to hike or move on foot, I'd recommend getting the 10-22 and take it with the 24-105. That's all you'd need. Since you are traveling a long distance, I'd go with a light, simple kit.

If you are staying in the valley, I recommend "meadow meandering" at the ends of the day. Go to some of the meadows, and walk, look, feel, smell, enjoy. Yosemite is a place to be savored outdoors, with the wind, the rocks, the trees...

Also half dome is a great soft box late afternoon near mirror lake, in case you want to take portraits in the forest.

Lunch at the Ahwahnee Hotel... yummers!

There are books on photographing Yosemite which will save you time.
