Greetings!! Boy am I glad to find this treasure trove of information. My husband and I have recently decided that we're going to break away from the norm (heading to the carribbean) and travel west this February/March.
Our plan is to fly into San Diego and spend 3 days before heading out. We're looking at 2-3 weeks spent traveling around but don't really know what will be open. Some points of interest are:
San Diego (3-4 days)
Monteray Bay Aquarium
Petrified Forest National Park
Carlsbad Caverns National Park
Arches Naitonal Park
Redwood National Park
We're thinking about flying out of Las Vegas, but we're not setting anything into stone until be can figure out a sensible path for our travels. We're not looking to travel anywhere close to Los Angeles either. If anybody can give some helpful suggestions on a sequence for these places, or let me know if I'm completely out of my mind with this itinerary - I'd really appreciate it.
