My husband and I ( very late 50's and from uk) will be leaving Yosemite on 16th May and travelling to the lake.
We will probably do VRBO as all of them seem available at the moment! We like peace and quiet so this seems a better option.
Not sure how long journey will take from Y although we plan to leave not later than 10a.m. We are not sure which road we will come in on yet ( my map book has the main fold right on that bit)!
We will probably do the west side of the lake, but are not sure where to base ourselves.We have a rental car.
We can only do short trails and need to be based somewhere quiet but with nearby facilities for food shopping and restaurants.
We are not into casinos or anything, just want to visit the most scenic points.
Also when leaving the lake and travelling to possibly Santa Rosa, does it make a lot of difference whether you leave from the northern or southern end time wise? If leaving from the northern end would the Yuba city route be a better way to come down into the Santa Rosa area? Not sure how bad it would be going through
Sacramento. Does anyone have a rough idea how long the various routes would take? Weatherwise I will be catering for all conditions as regards clothes!
I am sorry to ask so many questions!!
Many thanks to all!
