Just to congratulate you folks on a brilliant site.
Me and the wife are flying to Las Vegas in Sept for 2 weeks. We have a hire car for that time and apart from the first 2 nights in Vegas, we hope to just drive around and see some of America. The general idea is to see the Grand Canyon (obviously). Death valley, Yosmite Park, San Francisco, Los Angeles and back to Vegas. This forum unfortunately offer a *lot* of other things to see and I might have to plan instead of following my nose hehe.
One problem I might have is the wife, she has difficulty walking any great distance, so hiking is out, wherever we go must have easy access for cars, kinda rules out a trip to see the sliding stones in Death Valley.
Being a geek at heart, I would also like to get my photo taken on the sloping rocks used in Star-Trek series (Bill and Ted's bogus journey too), It's near LA I think, will do more reading. The only map I have at present is Google, but will buy an atlas once I land (also have sat-nav just in case).
If I have questions, I will post knowing the answers will be just what I was after.
