We are a Swedish family consisting of two adults and two children 5 and 6 years old. We are planning taking a vacation this summer and would like to visit: Bryce canyon, Zion national park, possibly Yosemite and than San Fransisco (and around there see redwoods!) and some part south of SF spending some time along the coast. We thinking of flying either to Las Vegas or Salt Lake City and fly back from San Fransisco. The trip would be between 2.5 -3 weeks long and what we want to do is some hiking and camping (we want to spend at least two days in both Bryce and Zion) but also spend a few days at some nice place along the coast relaxing. Can you give us any suggestions, especially about which way to go from Bryce to SF. Would it take much more time going over the mountains that by Las Vegas? Or is this to ambitious given the time we have? Sorry if this is an issue that has been raised many times before but searching the forum I could not find really what we was looking for. Thanks!
