I'm new to this forum.
I'm planning a road trip this August and one of the legs involves driving from Las Vegas to San Francisco.
I'm travelling with the family (daughters ages 14 and 12).
We'd like to see Death Valley and then we are stuck between the choice of either heading up to Yosemite and then across to SF or going South and round to Sequoia/ Kings Canyon as an alternative to Yosemite before heading up to SF.
I understand Yosemite will be very busy in August.
Are the other National Parks a better option or is this a much longer detour?
Any advice would be welcome...also on best places to stay,
