Hi. Advice requested, please.
I will be helping my son move from Santa Fe, NM to Eugene, OR in early June. We would like to do this trip in no more than 4 or 5 nights out. We will have a small (10') moving truck which will tow a flatbed trailer for his car. It will be the two of us and his 70 lb dog. We are willing to do camping stops or pay for hotels. Short (no more than 1/2 hr) hikes only. We would like to make sure the places we stop are reasonably secure, as all his possessions will be in the truck. The stops we have considered, which are along a few possible routes, are:
1. Moab, Bryce/Zion, Salt Lake, Las Vegas, Reno or Lake Tahoe, Crater Lake, Bend OR
2. Grand Canyon, north or south rim (I have been to south twice, he has not been to GC at all), Vegas, Death Valley, Reno/Tahoe, Crater Lake, etc
3. Northern route through Salt Lake, then Idaho, into OR.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.
