I recently took a trip to Fresno and while I was there I drove up to Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks.

Yosemite is about 2hr 30min from Fresno its a big beautiful park with lots to see we drove to the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite its a nice drive and the hotel is worth seeing it looks like its from a Harry Potter movie.

The next day we drove to Sequoia National Park to see General Sheramn a large sequoia tree.

The Sequoia National Park is about 2hr from Fresno.

Fresno is a good base to visit these two parks from as both parks are about the same distance from Fresno. There is no cell service in the parks so what to do is map a specfic location in the park you wish to see like General Sherman or Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite and than do your best to find wifi at one of the lodges to get directions back if you can not get wifi at one of the lodges than do your best to remember how to get out of the park because you will have no internet until you are out of the park.

 

When we went to The Sequoia National Park to see The General Sherman Tree we had to park and take a park provided free bus the rest of the way we had to transfer bus to get to the final destination but the bus is free and its not overly complicated make sure you ask the bus where you are getting on at what the stop is called so you can get back to there ask where your getting off so you know to transfer back to that same spot just in general if your not sure ask a lot of questions. You don't want to get lost.
