Hi Everyone,

This is my first post to the forum and I was hoping you guys might be able to help us out.

My partner and I have booked our first road trip, flying from the UK. We have already booked car hire and accomodation along the route, and I was hoping you might be able to give us insights/ideas/places to visit etc.

I am very keen to see 'proper' America, plenty of natural parks and beautiful landscape and classics such as Route 66.

Our route is:
San Fran 3 nights
Yosemite 3 nights
Sequoia 2 nights
Death Valley 1 night
Las Vegas 2 nights
Zion Nat Park 1 night
Bryce Canyon 1 night
Lake Powell 2 nights
Grand Canyon 1 night
Scottsdale 2 nights
We then fly back to the UK from Phoenix.

Are there any really long or difficult drives we should be aware of/plan for?
I also have concerns over safety of the car and our health in Death Valley as such a harsh environment.

Any info would be grately recieved.

Many thanks
