We'll be leaving Dodger Stadium area of LA at noon. Will it be at all worth the miles to drive up to Sequoia National Park to see General Sherman tree that afternoon/evening, spending the night in Visalia, then resuming our travels along the coast to Monterey? Trip is in early August, so we could have enough daylight. Family isn't really hikers, Congress Trail would suffice if had the time. How delusional is this idea?
