Hi Roadtrip Experts!!
We are planning to drive from Chicago to San Fran. The plan is to leave on Friday 2-3am and get to San Fran airport by 10am on Tuesday the following week. I know it's going to be a very demanding and rushing trip, but I still hope that we can get to drive through some scenic routes.
My current plan is to take the quickest and most direct route, I-80, from Chicago to Denver. Google map shows 16 hours of drive. I'm planning to get to Denver around noon on Saturday. From Denver, I am "hoping" to drive up north to see Grand Teton NP. Then, drive down to Salt Lake City. Then, just take 80 the rest of the way until we hit San Fran.
Do you guys think it's not possible or way too demanding to make the extra effort to see Teton NP? Can anyone recommend a nice scenic route in the area between denver and SLC? I'm assuming that's the area most worth to check out during my trip.
Thanks for your help!
