Portland to Yosemite tentative Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I would like to take advantage of a child free period this summer and take a road trip . Arriving from the Toronto area. We are very active , outdoorsy people. We love nature, good food, and pretty much any outdoor sport available. We received help on this forum for our San Francisco Big Sur trip, that we absolutely loved. ( especially the Nepenthe tip- the best dining experience of my life. No idea what I ate , that wasn't really the point) . Any lodging or restaurant suggestions would be welcome as well. Budget is 150. - 200 a night.
Here is our tentative itinerary. I am aware it might need reworking. The dates are

August 1,2 fly to Portland. Spend 2 nights explore Columbia River gorge?
August 3 , 4, 5 Oregon Coast. Suggested stop overs ending in California?
August 6 Redwoods - Avenue of the Giants ,Humboldt
August 7 Napa
August 8 and 9 Yosemite right now we have reservations August 8 at the lodge at the Falls, and August 9th Yosemite View Lodge ,will keep working on that.
August 10 Lake Tahoe
August 11 fly home Reno
Does it seem doable? Should I squeeze a day somewhere for an extra night in Yosemite?
Any suggestions on places to stay? Between 150 and 200 would be great.
