In a month, I will be flying to California with my spouse for a vacation. It will be roughly a week long. Part of it will be spent with my sister in San Diego, but we would like to see things in other parts of the state. Particularly the trees, redwoods and giant sequoias. I’ve wanted to see them my entire life. We know they are in the northern part of a very large state, and SD is in the south.
We are hoping to drive north and camp along the way (sending tent and sleeping bags out to my sister via UPS Ground instead of taking them on the plane). Is that feasible, or are the trees too far away? Will the weather be camp-able in CA in mid-Feb? A little cold wouldn’t bother us.
What else should we see/do along the way or while we are in CA? We are animal-friendly folks more interested in natural wonders than man-made entertainment – more Blackfish than Sea World, if you know what I mean.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts and suggestions.
