Yosemite National Park, Portland

Driving from Portland Oregon to Yosemite National Park, any "must sees?"

My husband and I are coming over from Australia and plan to drive from Portland OR, to Yosemite National Park. It looks like an amazing drive, we have two days to do it. Is there anyone who can give me the low down on places not to miss please?

Two days is asking a lot....straight down I-5 then E to Jamestown (California), staying at old west hotel.  2nd day you'll enter park....suggest you leave the park via Tioga Pass, then S on 395 to Bishop (California) then crossing Death Valley and fly out from Las Vegas...

You wouldn't be going to Yosemite National Park unless you love nature and beautiful scenery. 

You could take an inland route stopping at Crater Lake National Park and following the Redwood Highway. Redwood forests are amazing and so is Crater Lake. 

You could take a coastal route. Oregon's rugged seacoast is just outstanding and the Columbia River from Portland to the Pacific Ocean is incredibly scenic.

Tough choice.

The things I would like to see going to Yosemite Valley from Portland - I would like to drive along the river to Mt Hood and then I would like to see Lassen Volcanic National Park.  But I would also like to drive along the coast through Coos Bay and Eureka (California) and of course Muir Woods National Monument  But that would probably take more than 2 days
