Hi! First post to the forum.
I would like to hear your comments about our plans for road trip during next summer (i.e. is our plan realistic, is the season too hot etc.).
We have been planning for two week trip from either Chicago or Dallas to San Francisco. On the way we would like to visit at least Santa Fe, Grand Canyon and Las Vegas and if time permits Bryce Canyon, Yosemite etc. This would happen during next July. There would be four of us and we plan to sleep in motels. Is two weeks long enough time for this if we would like to stay 2-3 days in Santa Fe, Vegas and San Francisco? We would fly from Finland to Dallas or Chicago or Dallas and rent car which we would return to San Franciso and then fly back home from there.
(Some background: in December 1997 while studying in Austin, Texas, I did trip with my German friends from Austin to Santa Fe, Flagstaff, Grand Canyon, Page, Bryce Canyon, Las Vegas for two nights, Yosemite, San Franciso 2 nights, San Diego, El Paso and then back Austin. We did this in two and half weeks and now I would like to visit some of these places again with my girlfriend and friends from Finland).
