We are a couple with 2 children aged 1 and 4, so kid friendly distances and activities welcome. We like beautiful places (coast, mountain, water) and those with scientific or other interest, eg redwoods/volcanoes. Would be nice to have swimming holes/hot springs at some point...Happy to rough it in basic camps to avoid crowds or ugliness, but camps with kiddie stuff also appreciated...
Itinerary so far:
SF 3 days
Yosemite 2 days (camp at Midpines)
Mono lake 2 days (camp at Reversed creek)
Lake Tahoe ?2 days, which side?, ?where to stay/visit?
Then more confused - coast or inland, or combination?
Lava beds ?kids too small
Klamath and Tule Lake bird sanctuary
anywhere between Arcata and Newport...we may have more time after the wedding for coast, though the other option is Mount Hood area...
Thankyou for your help everyone!
