Hi, Back again to plan our yearly road/tent camping trip to the US. in late Aug/early Sept. Have 17-19 days.
Leave after work?-BC-Spokane WA-
DAY 1-Kennwick WA-Bend OR-
Have seen Crater Lake but may stay at Diamond Lake( camped there before) if getting late.
DAY 2-Thinking of taking Hwy 230-62 to Grant's Pass OR-$30 for Yurts at Grants pass-Schroeder Park( may stay here?)--Cresent City CA-(stay in area?
DAY 3-Eureka CA-Avenue of giants-HUMBOLDT REDWOODS SP, CA-(may camp here?)and sightsee area for 2 days
DAY 4-Redwoods SP area
DAY 5-Take Hwy 36-Whiskeytown National Recreation Area ( Spend 2 days? sightsee Lake Shasta-McAurther-Burney Falls,Lassen Volcano NP,etc-ANY OTHER MUST SEE SIGHTS HERE?
DAY 7-NOT SURE OF ROUTE(MAYBE SOME HELP HERE?)
If go the Reno Rt- maybe see Lassen Volcano Np on way there?
Or go Chico-Nevada City-Truckee?-Lake Tahoe
Can stop if something interesting in area? before Lake Tahoe
Any insight to good camping at lake Tahoe?
DAY 8-Lake Tahoe-Carson City
DAY 9-Carson City-Mono Lake-Bishop-Valley of Fire SP-LONG DRIVE DAY
DAY 10-Valley of Fire SP-Zion NP( stay in area ? nights)SIGHTSEE ZION/BRYCE/PAGE/ANTELOPE CANYON
DAY 11-WANT TO CHECK OUT SLOT CANYONS-WHERE TO STAY?
DAY 16-Park City
DAY 17-Bear Lake
Day 18- Salmon ID going home this route to Missoula- Kalispell MT-BC
These last 3 days are just places we may stop and see not necessarily staying in them.
We are early 50's couple like to tent camp- but may stay in yurts(never have?) or cabins( sometimes cabins are same $ as tent sites in smaller areas. Do motels on long drive days.
We like to do easy hikes, see historic/natural things. like to avoid freeways and like hot weather.. love to go swimming
SLOT CANYONS are really something I want to do again... we did Wildhorse SLot canyon near Goblin SP and found it easy.
Went thru Lake Shasta and wanted to stop there and see sites this time.
We like to go home quickly usually.
Have never been to Lake Tahoe area so any ideas ... Carson City worth checking out I'm sure?
Thanks for help!
I love this site...Awesome!
