we are two guys from Germany planing a Road-Trip in Western North America in August/September 2010. We have 21 days time and we start in LA. We want to see Las Vegas, San Francisco, Utah, Yellowstone, Calgary (Canada), Whistler, Vancouver. We want to end the trip in Seattle. We know it will be a long trip with alot of hours driving, but this is no problem for us as far as we are both loving talking and joking together ;-)
We also know that there will be places were it is worth to stay for a couple of days, but this is not our goal. We like to check out the places to know were it is worth to go again in future.
I have already been to Death Valley, LV , Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce Canyon NP and know the area quite well there.
Is there anybody who can recommend a route going from Grand Canyon op to the North towards Yellowstone and from there to Calgary - Vancouver - Seattle area? Which places are on the route that we must see? Is there an option not to take the "big highways"?
Is it realistic to do this trip in 3 weeks?
