At the last minute we found out we have some time off for Labor Day and really would like to see some of Sequoia and/or Kings Canyon. Have been reading through the site forums and helpful posts but am feeling overwhelmed.
There will be three of us driving up from Irvine, CA -- two adults (I am 6 months pregnant) and a 2. 5 year old. We are hoping to leave Fri the 31st and come back on the 4th.
Here a few questions I was hoping you could help me with:
1) What might be the best approach for driving to avoid too much backtracking? It seems like the Giant Forest is one of the main things to see. Would it make sense to drive there and then back down south to see something else?
2) Where would you suggest a good location to stay that might be a good point for day drives out to see the sites.
3) What would you recommend would be the most toddler (and pregnant lady) sites to visit?
Thank you so much! I feel like I am on information overload so any guidance is very much appreciated!
