As part of a trip to California at the beginning of September my partner and I are planning on driving from San Diego to San Francisco, via Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP (and Yosemite if possible). We would also like to visit Red Rock Canyon SP. Can anyone recommend a town to stay in close to these 2 parks (i.e the southern edge of Sequoia)? We have 3 days to get from San Diego to San Francisco. Any help regarding this or any good routes to take would be greatly appreciated.
