    Default oh the possibilities

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    The list of possibilties for this trip is virtually endless, and quite frankly, endless is a pretty good term to describe the number of threads we have that discuss the number of possibilities about trip in the Las Vegas/California area. Search around the forum, including these threads, and you'll find tons of information and ideas for your trip.

    Default One possible route

    Since you have two weeks to get to LA the possibilities are endless.

    One possible way is to go from Vegas to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. From there procede east of US 89 Alt. Be sure to stop at Navaho Bridge and look for California Condors. They nest in the cliffs near the bridge. You might want to take the trip to the nearby ferry crossing-used before the bridge was built. Keep watch on time because motels are few and far between in this area.

    Contine south on 89 to Flagstaff. Visted the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest in route. While in Flagstaff visit the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

    Take old route 66 the rest of the way into LA. Be sure you go thru Peach Springs. Note: there is a way to drive to the bottom of the Grand Canyon here (check at the Indian Headquarters) when the road is good.

    Be sure to stop in Oatman and feed the donkeys. Fill up with gas in Topock because gas is much higher in Needles. Also, you might want to take a side trip to Lake Havasu and DRIVE across the London Bridge.

    From Needles to LA travel to your heart's content. You might want to spend one night in the Wigwam motel for the experience.

    Remember the journey is as important as the destination!
