We are planning a trip in mid-August with the ultimate goal of leaving our son at college in Boulder, CO. We will have 6 people, ages 13 - 45 with 5 drivers so we feel we could cover some serious ground in the first couple of days in order to get "out there". Everyone tells us driving straight across the country can get boring and that we should drive in an arc, instead, either going north or south. Any thoughts on that? We have about 14 days.
Lastly, any suggestions on what to see. We fully plan to drive past CO but not too far west.
