I have read some incredible informative replies by Forum Experts in other Forums (Death Valley & Yosemite NP) but decided to open a new thread to ask my specific question in this Forum.
So, We are going to hire a car and drive from Las Vegas to San Francisco via Death Valley and Yosemite NP. We will be there from mid-September for two weeks and can allocate 4 days to this part of the holiday. I have read somewhere that a detour via Lake Tahoe to San Francisco would be very scenic and enjoyable and therefore worthwhile of some extra driving. If we don't do this loop we could stay an extra night in Yosemite. What is your opinion?
How are the road and trafic conditions approaching San Francisco from this direction? Where would you stay overnight, in Lake Tahoe, Sacramento or somewhere between? We would start a day from Lee Vining and visit Bodie on the way, apart from that I have other plans for the trip.
I would be very grateful of any help and/or succestions.
