looking at hiring a motorbike from san fran and heading to Yosemite sightseeing two days . 2 things I want to do when im there is to check out el cap (of course) and take the hike up half dome. looking at finding good accommodation near these iconic crags.. may not do the bike thing but hire a rv (van)instead so looking maybe for a comfortable motel/lodge/ to stay with the bike or a good place to park the rv and take in the ambience.thx
Yes all the accommodation is down in the valley. A tent cabin might be expensive for one person and you can still hear the bears wandering around outside - one tore open the door of a car one night to get at food left inside when I was there. I seem to remember some sort of hotel. There was a huge food eating hall. Half Dome is just an easy day walk from the carpark. El Cap a local stroll - neck craning look up. Another walk is to Glacier Point, no ice but a good view.
