We arrive the morning of 6/11 and love Portland, so we'll spend a day in the city. The reservation is set for the Snow Lodge in Yellowstone on 6/15. Finally, we have to be in San Diego for a business meeting on 6/27.
The travelers: two teens 14 and 16 and two adults.
What we're looking for: cool and beautiful nature of the west. Weird sights, meeting the locals, local food, festivals, and sights. To sum it up to meet America: things, people, food and places we don't have in the southeast.
vehicle - Ford explorer 4x4 with Garmin Nuvi system.
ace in the hole - mega pile of Marriott points to spend on rooms
So folks, here are the million dollar questions: What routes should we take? What should we see? What can we save for another trip? How do we best spend our time?
After Yellowstone what is the best route and things to see in route to the Grand Canyon? Stop in Grand Teton? Salt Lake City? After the Grand Canyon what should we see as we travel to San Diego?
Any comments will be appreciated.
