We are visiting Yellowstone and Yosemite next July and have booked accommodation. We have 5 clear days in between and are puzzling how best to use them.
Option 1, use two days to visit Glacier National Park. Head through Cascades to the Pacific Coast, scurry down towards Yosemite.
Option 2, Miss out Glacier NP, head for Pacific Coast, take our time meandering South
Option 3, take two days between Yellowstone and Nappa Valley spend a couple of days in wine region then head for Yosemite
Open to other suggestions! Our priority is scenery, scenery and scenery. Already visited San Francisco (great city, but don't want to go back on this trip). We will have a National Parks Pass and want to make best use of it.
We will have seen Utah national parks earlier in the trip. Don't mind long days driving, particularly as in July it won't get dark until late. Ideal day is to leave around 9am after breakfast, stop off at 2 or 3 places en route, arrive at overnight stop at 8 or 9pm. Above all want to maximise scenery. Happy to stop at turnoff and walk 1 or 2 hours to see spectacular sight, but not able to do half or full days hike.
