I'm considering taking an alternative route from Anaheim to Yosemite. The conventional route uses I-5 and CA-99. However, the I-15 and CA-395 route looks interesting. It's about 100 miles (1.5hrs) longer, but the views seem grander and traffic less. Also, it would give us the chance to see another CA ecosystem (desert), and we'd get to see more of the High Sierra and Tuolomne Meadows. Am I nuts?
