Advice on southern Sierra
I'm looking into a trip in the Southern Sierra later this month. I'll probably come in through the east, up 190. Like to visit Kennedy Meadows, some of the big (fat) sequoias, stick a toe in the Kern, Kern Plateau, etc.
Lots of roads up there, so seeking advice on camping and driving stuff (nothing very hairy; only one vehicle). Haven't decided whether to exit via the Kern drainage (I imagine anything near water and south to Isabella will be mobbed), or to exit down to 395.
Anyone ever get into Monache Meadows? heard that jeep road isn't suitable for big vehicles these days, having been eroded recently.
Any other suggestions appreciated.
