I just starting research a trip to San Francisco and Yosemite... so any advice or tips would be appreciated. Would spending 4 full days in each area work? We would fly to SF and rent a car. (never been to CA at all) Would an April/May trip or a Sept/Oct trip be better? It seems like spring would be better for the waterfalls in Yosemite.
I am really interested in the natural beauty of the area... the beaches, the sequoias. Any must-see scenic areas? What about stops between the SF and Yosemite? Thanks in advance!
