We will be staying at El Tovar on Oct 17th then driving from there to Santa Rosa - we need to be there by monday evening 21st Oct. We had planned driving through Death Valley then 120 to Yosemite and on to SR. (obviously stopping for 3 nights on the way) My brother who lives in Santa Rosa has just said a mate is coming to stay with him in Sept and is keen to see Yosemite so he isn't overly keen to go two months in a row and as I have been there I am happy to see something different. My question is what is another way to get to Santa Rosa from the Grand Canyon driving no more than 3 or 4 hours each day and preferably not up the central valley (we did that last trip- not that inspiring!!)
Is it possible to drive to the coast and do the coast road???? (that really appeals to me)
I apologise if thisis the wrong pace to put this, I will also put it in the road trips forum.
We are not big on hiking, my 13 yr old seems mainly keen on shopping but she can live without for a few days I think!
