Thank you Roadtrip America for providing such a forum, and to all the contributors for their time in making it worthwhile: Im delighted to have found you and hope to learn lots.
We have for various reasons elected to drive vice fly to Phoenix for a sports event, and are looking for tips on best roads for the trip.
Our itinerary is:
Salt Lake City
Redwood National Park
Im hoping to ask for input from anyone about different routes from Salt Lake City to Grand Canyon (seems to be 3 routes, any opinions on sightseeing options for each?). We are in a 29ft Class C and hoping to weigh off fuel considerations against must see spots and tricky winter roads.
Any tips on:
Monument Valley worth going the long way around for?
Can I assume that rest stops/rv dump stations are the same regularity as in Washington?
Finally for the return trip: any roads to avoid with a class c coming up the coast (and are we right in trying to hug the coast for scenery?).
Any advice much appreciated! TIA. (I should clarify we are Antipodean and still learning States, so our knowledge of anything beyond Seattle is very slim- roads and highways etc are a steep learning curve).
