So, my husband and I decided to take a road trip for our 10th anniversary to Vegas. He's taken a full 2 weeks off of work so we could take a few days to get there and back. We leave Portland on Tues the 26th and plan on getting to Vegas sometime on Thurs the 28th. Then we leave Vegas Nov 2nd and get home whenever.
The plan is to go there and come home two different ways because I enjoy nature photography and am hoping to get some beautiful autumn pictures in. Of course, the maps we are "using" are what were suggested by Google maps, so the plan down is I-5S to Eugene, cut over on 97 down through Klamath Falls and over to Reno, etc (stopping overnight in K Falls and Reno or Sparks). Then mapping home is from Vegas I-15N up to Boise and then I-84W (stopping overnight in Wells, NV and Boise).
My question to all you wonderfully experienced travelers out there, does this seem to be the most reasonable directions or are there more preferred routes out there? Also, are there "must see" or "must dos" along the way.
My husband has been a lot of everywhere in Oregon. I, however, have not. The farthest south I've seen is Medford (and that is not that worthwhile!). Otherwise, I've never road tripped in the US. I'm aware that as a photographer, there will be a lot of miles of nothing, but I see it as a lot of miles of nothing I've never seen before :-)
Thanks to all out there!!
