Hi there, this is our first post on this awesome website. We have been reading other people's posts for the last few weeks while trying to plan our trip down the west coast of America and possibley into some of the national parks.
We are leaving at the end of April from Seattle and drop off the RV in Phoenix at the end of May. We have booked a few nights in the Sunset Bay State Park and also the Praire Creek Redwoods State Park, but from here we only have a rough plan.
Our main question is whether at this time of year Yosemite National Park and Death Valley National Park are open or whether it would be a better plan to keep heading down the west coast and take in the mighty Big Sur that we have heard so much about from friends who have done similar trips.
Our final destination is actually Las Vegas but it was more economical to drop the RV in Phoenix. We are hoping to take in Sonoma/Napa and San Francisco before potentially heading east into the national parks.
Looking forward to any advice! Excited Kiwis.
