February trip, Yosemite or Sequoia/ Kings Canyon??

Jump to last reply

Hello! I hope and very much appreciate if you could help me.

My parents and I are planing a trip to CA. We are going from LA to SF visiting the Parks and then back down to LA threw the Pacific Coast Highway.
A lady advised us to go to Lake Tahoe. I looked up for some pictures and it looks simply stunning! So that is definitely in our plans.
We are on a tight schedule and only have 5 days to do Yosemite or S/KC and Lake Tahoe. My parents want to go to both Y and S/KC but, I'm a little concerned about the timing. Is it worth driving into S/KC or is it better to just keep going up to Yosemite? ... since is a long drive north to Lake Tahoe.
Another main reason why I'm uncertain is the season. NPS website says many paths both in Yosemite and S/ KC are closed in winter. Which one is more enjoyable this time of the year?

If any writing mistake, I ask you to forgive me it has been while since I don't write in English.

Thank you very much in advance!!
Have a nice evening.
