beginning to mid Sept. we are travelling by private car(truck actually) from southwestern bc to california.
want to do the big sur area, giant trees-crystal cave in three rivers area,death valley, las vegas 3-4 days, grand canyon,back up to bc from grand canyon. we are about 5 hrs north of Spokane WA. was thinking just take the fastest route there, maybe through Reno??? do the Big sur along highway 1, cut over to three rivers-is that possible, then over to death valley-through the less travelled route that i have seen mentioned on this site, on to vegas, vegas to south rim around to north rim and then back home to bc. does this make sense and is it doable, we both drive. my original thought was to do oregan-california coast.san francisco, la, vegas and then the rest but i see that is not probably possible and california seems to have way more interesting things to see. we may tent or stay in motel,clean but not fancy is good.would rather see the nature sites than the city sites.14 days for it all
