Sequoia & Kings Canyon Memorial Weekend Backpacking Trip

We're new in town and want to make a trip out to see the giant redwoods during Memorial weekend. Wilderness permits can't be reserved anymore as the trip is happening next week (less than 2 weeks).

I'd like to gauge interest on arriving Friday afternoon and staying overnight in the front country of Grant Grove Area or Mineral King Area. All the campsites there are non-reservable. I'm able to leave SF early morning on Friday to find/hold a site and also get a wilderness permit for the next day.

On Saturday morning, we'll backpack into either the Redwood Canyon or Atwell/Hockett Trail depending on where we stay the night before. Maybe do a 1 or 2 night loop.

Any takers? Anyone with experience in these areas and would like to go?
