San Francisco Airport to Yosimitie via Golden Gate
Hi, We arrive about 1 pm local, pick up our Dollar hire car and then drive to Cedar Lodge, 8 mile from Yosemite. It would be nice to drive over the Golden Gate, and back, but I don't want a nightmare drive, get stuck in the rush hour and then face 200 miles odd to our Hotel. Is it 'doable' or should we just hope to see it out of the aircraft window as we approach?
Palm Springs to San Diego
We are making this journey from Palm Springs along #10,and I was wondering if it would be too far a drive to visit the Planes of Fame Museum at Chino. Google Earth says it's 'only' about 30 miles off their suggested route "Palm Springs to San Diego" and having got there, had lunch, looked round we could retrace our route OR go costal and enjoy #5, San Clemente, Oceanside and on to San Diego which I have to say looks pretty good.
Grand Canyon to Palm Springs, via Joshua Tree
Google earth can't plan this route for me, but it looks reasonable. Any specific advice I need?
