I've read lots of threads about planning a trip around california. Thanks to this great forum!
Me and my girfriend will go from 29th August to 15th September.
There is one difficulty about visiting all the places of our interest.
My trip starts from SFO and ends in LA, which leads to the following itinerary:
First I'm staying a couple of days in the San Francisco area, then:
Day 1 - San Francisco to Napa/Sonoma Valley
Day 2 - along coast up north to Eureka - Mt Shasta & Lake - Lassen Volcanic Park (overnight in this area?)
Day 3 - Lake Tahoe
Day 4 and 5 - Lake Tahoe to Yosemite
Day 6 to 8 - here's the difficulty: back to south of SFO and drive down the coastal road till Ventura (stops between)
Day 9 and 10 back into Death Valley - south to Mojave dessert - Joshua tree Park (where to stay?)
Day 11 Palm Springs - San Diego
Day 12 - 15 coast up to LA (stops between)
Day 15 - 17 LA
How do you think, is it a reasonable plan?
What would you skip? Where would you spend more time?
Is there some time left to go to Vegas from Death Valley?
Thanky for your help!
