We will be spending one day in the Humboldt redwoods, staying in Eureka, then traveling on to Yosemite. We are currently considering driving across rt. 299 to Redding then down 5. We have one full day and one night unaccounted for before getting to Yosemite. The question is where to spend it and what to see on our way. We will be starting our vacation in San Francisco then heading north through Sonoma/Napa/Calistoga over to Highway 1 (my favorite part of the trip) up the coast to Fort Bragg and the glass beach. All of these rooms and routes have already been planned/booked. We are hikers but need fresh linens at the end of the day. Should we just zoom to Yosemite and give it another day or is there something equally awe-inspiring on the way to Yosemite that is worth going a little out of our way for that we shouldn't miss?
