Hi!! I'm a Spanish girl, who is now in DC working for 3 months. To finish my short stay i'm planning to make a road trip with a friend. We already booked plane tickets to San Francisco (will arrived 7th January) and rent a car. It will be a round trip because we have to go back to Europe from there too. So, this is the plan:
7,8 San Francisco
9 Muir Wood, Sonoma Valley, sleep in Sonora
10 Go to Yosemite and sleep there
11 Yosemite, go to Sequoia National Park and sleep there
12 Visit Sequoias and then start with the road to Death Valley, sleeping on the road
13 Death Valley
14 Something between
15 Arrived to Las Vegas
16 Visit Las Vegas and left early to Grand Canyon, sleep there
17, 18 Grand Canyon
Then we should start the "going home"
21 Sleep in San Francisco
22 10:00 am, leave :(
So, I have the typical doubts: don't know if is too much for the days we have. We don't want to spend lot of hours driving, we want to take it easy. And besides is winter, so some roads could be closed, and dangerous, snow, rain, fog...
I will appreciate (a lot) any tips that you could give me, about the days, weather, roads...
Thank you very much and Happy Holidays!!
