My wife and I are planning a 5 week road trip crossing the US. Starting in Washington 10th November, arriving Los Angeles 10th December.
We've determined our preferred route, but plan to take it as it comes, some days we may well stay others press on.
I've shown our route below.
I'm a little nervous about our route across the Sierra Nevada, we plan to head from Vegas to Mammouth lakes and then on to Yosemite before heading up the the coast just above San Franciso.
Likely to be leaving Vegas on around 1st December.
Am really looking for any advice anyone might have about the likelihood of snow making this route innappropriate and if so what might be a more sensible option.
Also if you've any annecdotes or tips of the places we are headed then would really like to hear them!
