We have just booked the flights that will hopefully let us have our dream holiday this summer, have organised car rental and are now frantically trying to organise the rest!! We are a large family of 2 adults and 4 children (15, 13, 11 and 10) and will be flying in and out of SF. We would love to see Yosemite, Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon etc but need advice on the best routes and wether this will even be possible in the time we have. In my mind I have us travelling out of SF to Yosemite, down through some more parks towards Grand Canyon, across to the coast and back up via the coast to SF - is this totally unrealistic in the time we have or do you think it can be done?!! Also, we will be on a limited budget and in the UK we always camp (in a tent) and want to do this again for the holiday, so can anyone tell me if we can just rent the equipment we would need or should we budget to bring it with us / buy in America? Really sorry for the questions and vague route, we have only just come into the money to pay for all this so are rushing around like mad trying to organise it all - though it is very fun!!
