Request Advice for Seattle to Yosemite Trip

Jump to last reply

My wife and I would appreciate any input you could provide as we plan our anniversary trip to the west coast. Here are our initial thoughts on an itinerary:
9/17 thru 9/19 -- Seattle (stay w/ friends)
9/19 thru 9/20 -- Portland (Hotel Vintage Plaza?)
9/20 -- Drive to Crater Lake and stay somewhere nearby (suggestions?)
9/21 -- After hiking around Crater Lake drive to Redwood Nat'l Park and stay somewhere nearby (suggestions?)
9/22 -- Drive down coast to Mendocino and stay at a B&B (suggestions?). It seems like a better value than staying in Napa or Sonoma. Are we right on this?
9/23 thru 9/25 -- We're thinking to drive to San Francisco from Mendocino and use SF hotel as a "home base" for site seeing w/in the city, to Half Moon Bay for golf, and possibly down to the Monterey Peninsula. Is this a good idea? The hotel we were thinking about is the Harbor Court Hotel.
9/26 thru 9/27 -- Drive to Yosemite and stay at the Wawona Lodge. Hike until we fly out of SFO on evening of 9/27.

Does this sound reasonable? Are we trying to see/do too much? If so, how would you do it differently? Thanks for your help.
