I just joined this forum as it seems to have some well informed users :)
Me and my girlfriend are planning a road trip in april the 9th to the 27th.
Our first plan was to start from L.A and head to San Diego, then Vegas, and then some way to San Francisco and then back to L.A.
However we would like to avoid cold areas, especially snow.
I have read that the way from Vegas to SF over the Sierra would have snow.
Lake Tahoe seems to have snow too in april.
Then I read about a trip (here - post 3) from Vegas to San Diego and that sounded like a good trip.
So maybe we should go from L.A to Vegas, then San Diego and then SF and back to L.A ?
Advise would be nice, or other suggestions.
Grand Canyon/Yosemite is not a must as we have been there before.
Highway 1 can be avoided too as we took that trip 2 years ago in september.
Death Valley we have driven thru from Beatty.
But I think there is still much to see.
We talked about going from Las Vegas to Zion on a day trip.
Also Extra Terrestrial highway looks fun.
In SF we would go to Muir NP.
In San Diego we would visit the Zoo's among other things.
To sum it up, I would like advices on the best route to take to avoid snow and to avoid driving the same place twice.
On a side note we are also into geocaching.
And we come from Denmark.
If more information is needed just say so and I'll try to answer
Big thanks to all.
