the left you can download a data sheet showing itemized estimated cost
ranges based on a single person absorbing all costs. If you will car
pool and room share you can cut costs dramatically. By comparing the
itemized costs to your own plans you can estimate a fairly accurate cost.
You can also download an Excel Spreadsheet for estimating and budgeting for
Photo Trip costs that is far more detailed and accurate.
The bottom line estimated range of costs for a single person who is driving themselves and not ride or room sharing will run as follows:
Lone Pine Trip: $200.00 - $500.00±
Yosemite Trip: $225.00 - As much as you want!
Download the Estimated Costs for the bases for these total. And REMEMBER: These costs largely reflect fuel prices so ride sharing will drop them drastically!
