California

National Parks

We'll be in Sonoma for a wedding in September and would like to use the trip as a jumping point to visit a National Park or two.  We'd have about a week for the parks.  Could anyone offer some suggestions?  We will have a car but would consider flying also. We love to hike, admire vistas and hope to see an animal or two but have do not want to camp or sleep in cabins. We've been to Mt. Rainier and Olympic. Thanks

Ok - Sonoma makes a bit more sense to visit California parks  I would be inclined to go to Yosemite Valley Visitor Center (staying at Yosemite Valley Lodge if you can get a room there - not camping) and/or Kings Canyon National Park staying at Wuksachi Lodge (Sequoia National Park is adjacent)  Also there is Big Basin State Park which we visited as a day trip on the way to San Francisco, although I think they do have camping.  Also of course there is Muir Woods National Monument and Point Reyes National Seashore (you could stay in SF or in Marin) and a bit farther south is Point Lobos State Reserve

Isn't Sedona pretty close to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and Zion National Park  Why do you want to go to California?
