What a great site. I have been reading as much as I can and will continue to do so. I would like to ask a couple of quesitons. My husband and I are trying to take in as many national parks as we can. I was thinking of flying out from Denver and trying to see Yosemite, Sequoia and King's Canyon for 5 days (a long weekend) next May.
Is it still to cold in May or is that a fine time to go (early May)?
Is it possible to do all of these and see them that quickly. We don't mind little hikes but don't need a ton of "hiking" time. Just experience the beauty.
It is obviously a lot cheaper to fly into San Fran or San Jose but we could do the closer airports for about double the price. Should we suck it up and do it?
It is just my husband and me (we finally get the message that our teens are not particularly interested in beauty....go figure!) who are in our early 40s.
Can you suggest a route/itinerary for me to get me started in the research.
I know Death Valley is right there also (another National Park....to check off). Is it something you have to pretty much drive through to experience? I would imagine it is but just checking. Not probably interested in going to Las Vegas unless someone talks us into it. we are from Denver and have been there many times.
Anything I am not thinking of? (I would love to see San Fran again but have been there so if I need the time elsewhere that is fine. We are really flexible.
Thanks for your advise!
