I'm going to have a single day in San Francisco near the end of this month, and I'm thinking of renting a car and going for a long drive in the surrounding areas. The problem is, I don't know where to go!
Ideally I'd like to get up into some mountains, see some amazing views, possibly out into a lush, green valley or even into a desert if possible. I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out whats a reasonable distance away.
I've realized that a single day doesn't amount to much of a roadtrip from everything I've been reading on this forum, but I don't think a 300 mile roundtrip sounds too shabby either. If anyone can help me figure this out, its you guys!
