I'm in first stages of planning trip to this region of the world. I've never been to any of these places before and of course, I'm wanted to see/do as much as possible. I was thinking about flying into Fresno, going to Yosemite, seeing gold country, then driving to Lake Tahoe, back into Sacramento, then depart out of Sacramento.
We're not into extreme outdoors activities, so Yosemite will not be focus of this trip. We do like beautiful scenery and history, along with nice places to stay and good food.
Any general thoughts on how long you think this trip might take? How many days should I be planning on? Should I be thinking about scaling back trip? Thanks.
