Our family is planning a trip this Summer and I am considering flying into Reno, driving to Lake Tahoe, Yosemite Nat'l Park, Sequoia/Kings Canyon, Devils Postpile, etc. Anyone visit these sights often and have suggestions? When to go? What to avoid? What not to miss?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Wait until spring. Maybe April or May. The place gets real nice then, the temperature is good and everything is green and waterfalls are still strong.
King Canyon is nice, Devils Postpile is cool, and the area is beautiful. Yosemite is rather crowded but it is a great place if you have never been there.
I would try to travel around and see as many places as you can, but make sure you stay long enough to enjoy it and not just run through.
