I will be coming down from Medford, Oregon to Redwood Nat'l Forest. From there I was planning on driving all the way down the coast to San Francisco. From there I want to go to Yosemite and then Sequoia. But I've read here and heard elsewhere not to miss the drive from Monterrey south to LA. What should I do here? Monterrey is so far back west from Sequoia. Is it really worth the drive, or will I get a good dose of Pacific coast driving from Redwood NF to San Francisco? Appreciate your insight!
