Here's the plan.
Wake up in Visalia Weds morning, leave hotel 6:00am.
Arrive Oakhurst around 7:30 am. Is Pete's Place open at this time? Any other suggestions?
Depart Oakhurst 8:15 am. Stop in Mariposa Grove. Arrive Yosemite Valley 10:30 am.
Make way gradually towards Lee Vining for dinner (hotel reservation there). Where to stop/what to eat for lunch along the way? The Ahwahnee Hotel is way out of our price range, and besides, we'll have moved on eastward down highway 120 by the time the 1:30 lunchtime gurgles hit us.
Whoa Nellie Deli for dinner... that is, if they're open late. Any ideas? Other suggestions?
As for Thursday, we're spending time at Mono Lake and Bodie before heading back to Los Angeles. 395 seems to be better represented chow-wise. (I've got Still Life Cafe and Mahogany Smoked Meats on my radar, as well as one of the Schats' bakeries in Bishop). Timeframe is more loose on this day, although we plan to be back in LA around 9-10pm. Any and all suggestions welcome.
