I have been browsing this great site and have found most of what I was looking for already because of this very popular tour. Couple of unanswered things though all to do with my planning the California "loop" trip - San Francisco, Yosemite, Las Vega, West Coast.
Question 1 is there any preference for clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. My thought was because you guys drive on the wrong side of the road (just joking!) it would be best to do route 1 coast first so take the anti-clock direction round. That way we would be driving on the coast side of the road. But I see from the post on this site that lots of people plan the clockwise route so I just wonder if there is a preference.
Second question is best time of year? We could do either late May/early June or mid September. I read that fog can be an issue on the coast stretch in early summer and also the mountain passes can't be relied upon to be open. But possibly the snow scenery would be fantastic in early June if the passes have only just opened.
Thanks in advance for what I know will be great answers
