    Do the Wild Western, then you get to go to both the Grand Canyon and Yosemite. Thats what i’m doing :-)

    Or do LA to the Bay, shorter but you see both.

    If you have to pick… I think the Grand Canyon is cooler, but you’re probably more likely to see that again another time then I would think you would be of seeing Yosemite.

    Did LA to the Bay in February and it was awesome… You do get time at the Grand Canyon as well as in Yosemite.. It ends in San Francisco so you can always spend a few days there on your own if you wanted to extend the trip a bit.
