We're doing a big road trip this summer--Colorado to Yosemite, then Yosemite to Patrick's Point
State Park/Redwoods NP, then to Bend, OR to visit family. Anyone have suggestions on the most scenic drive between Yosemite and Redwoods NP? And a great place to stay in between? We'll have camping stuff with us but are also open to getting a hotel somewhere. We're traveling with a 3yo so would like to break up the drive. Google maps is sending me north through Reno then through Redding, but I'm wondering if we should head west earlier to take the 101 up the coast? Please let me know if there is anything we shouldn't miss!
