I am brand new to your Forum. From what I have read so far, it looks like a great site.
I am planning a trip for May 29-June 6, 2009 out to Yosemite. It will be my first time. I will be backpacking and hiking for the week (still working out the exact itinerary.) But we will be spending most of our time in the valley area.
Here is the question: What airport should I fly into? I am coming from Michigan, will be renting a car upon arrival and driving to the park. Looks like Oakland or San Fran are my best options. With Stockton or Fresno being second choices (but I don't believe there would be a direct flight from Detroit.)
Any thoughts on the best airport? What are the driving distances?

Flying into Fresno will probably be an extra $100 though if you can get a flight to Fresno for the same price as Sac, SF, or Oak. then take it. Driving into Yosemite from Fresno (Hwy 41) you start in the middle of the state and drive into the foothills then Sierra within half an hour..
