After visiting Mono Lake, CA, we wanted to go back home. Due to bad cellphone coverage we referred to the dutiful Garmin nüvi 250 to suggest a route. It looked something like this:
The route went via CA-108 and not through Yosemite National Park. We figured this was a good choice, because we just went through the park a day earlier: it was Memorial Day weekend and we knew that the park would just be crowded today as it was yesterday. Going via CA-108 instead of CA-120 W (through the park) added ~20 miles but it still felt like a good choice.
When the phone had better reception again, I was wondering what other map services would have suggested:
- Google Maps, via CA-120 W, going through the park
- Bing Maps, via CA-120 W, going though the park
- Yahoo Maps, via CA-108
- Mapquest (Is anyone using this any more?), via CA-108
