Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!
There are plenty of threads that address the general Los Angeles, San Francisco, Yosemite, Las Vegas area, so rather than rehash that, I'm going to concentrate on two other items on your wish list. If you want to see more Indian sites, then by all means continue east from the Grand Canyon into the Four Corners area and New Mexico. You should look at spending at least a week of the five you have available to do a loop that would include Walnut Canyon National Monument, Monument Valley (and be sure to hire a native guide!), Mesa Verde National Park, Taos Pueblo, Petroglyph National Monument, and Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument. Then for zoos, head for San Diego by way of Tucson where the Sonora Desert Museum will introduce you to the animals of the southwest, and perhaps a side trip to Tombstone and/or Kartchner Caverns might be in order. Then, besides the world-class San Diego Zoo, there are also the multitude of things to do in Balboa Park.
thanks for the good advice. I'll look into that straight away! This site is awesome!! I have referred it to a few people thinking of going over and doing the same thing! thanks heaps!!!
We've had a lot of Aussies here lately!
Now we know who to thank. Thanks, Matey!
Or is that too cliche? You folks have some fun ways of saying things down under. Is there a fun term for saying thank you?
Let us know if we can help you further.
