Sandra, it looks like you'll have the time. San Antonio is the nicest place we have seen in Texas (well Padre Is. is pretty cool too). Note that it can be very hot in southern NM in June.

Santa Fe is our favorite place in NM and we stay at Trailer Ranch. Best to make reservations ahead of time because SF is busy. Don't try to tow a trailer around the Plaza or older parts of the city. The state parks in NM are well kept and priced fairly.

Yosemite is crowded, very crowded, though you will be there earlier in the season. Looks like you are staying at Wawona and will be away from a lot of the turmoil, but the sites may be small (haven't stayed at that CG) and you may be next to tents and others who will not appreciate generators. We tried to run ours when no one was around, but that was pretty hard to do. The drive down to the valley floor will take some time and plan accordingly. But you will be close to the Sequoias. We haven't gone to Hetch Hetchy, but want to because it is supposed to have been as or more beautiful than the Yosemite Valley before a reservoir was built there. Might be worth seeing.

If you are going to the Trinity Site, check out the NM Museum of Space History and White Sands National Monument in/near Alamagordo:

New Mexico Museum of Space History Alamogordo, New Mexico Celebrating the significant role the state of New Mexico has played in the development of the U.S. Space Program

White Sands National Monument (U.S. National Park Service)

Best campground near Alamagordo is Valley of Fires State Park, just west of Carizozo, which is also near the north entrance to the Trinity Site:

Valley of Fires Recreation Area

Note: Valley of Fires is actually on BLM land, and managed by NM State Parks; so you can get 50% discount on camping with National Parks Senior Pass:

U.S. National Park Service America the Beautiful
