We started out with plans for a 7-8 day trip (in August) to San Francisco and the wine country and then go further north to see the red woods. We then thought it might be fun to drive further and explore the northern coast, then before we knew it were thinking about going all the way up the coast toward Eureka then make our way back to San Francisco and fly home.
Here's the questions:
1. Would it make any sense to start our trip in Portland and just head south towards San Francisco allowing us to see all we want but in a one way direction. Mileage wise, it might be a bit longer, but we would cover more territory.
2. Is this too ambitious. Should we just enjoy San Francisco and the wine country but not go past Sonona, forgetting about Mendocino County, Humboldt county, etc.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
