Re: Thank you all: Itinerary draft

You may have time to wander Sacramento - the railroad museum and Old Sacramento at the river and capitol building are interesting.

Approaching Yosemite from the north , the prime entrance would be via 120.  Sonora or Jamestown are farther out than Groveland but not a bad choice for a late arrival then into Yosemite in the morning.  However, entering via Mariposa isn't a bad alternative.  It depends on where you get your lodging.  Since you have two nights in the area, I'd suggest considering El Portal and Mariposa as well.  The drive from Merced on 99 to Mariposa via 140 isn't too strenuous and it's about an hour from Mariposa into the valley.  El Portal is the most convenient lodging to the valley sites.  The Wawona area is farther out on the Wawona Road and you'd likely pass out south through there.

It's really going to depend on where you find a room to decide the route in that area.
