this is my first post. have read many interesting posts so far.
so i'm moving with my wife from South NJ to Portland, OR, so now looking for ideas to combine this move with a road trip.
Have only 9 days (or 10 if I arrange it a bit), and both my wife and I are nature lovers (=National Parks!!!). Both of us can drive, i have my license since 2002, and have done a number of long trips, including twice Philly-Miami and once Philly-Maine. So I'm not scared of driving. My wife is reasonably new, had her license from last year.
For this trip, we'd like to see as many nat'l parks as possible, but def don't mind seeing other monuments and important landmarks. I have a few must-sees for myself: Rocky mountain, Yosemite, and heard about the Mighty 5 of Utah, and Colorado's other national parks.
But i wonder if anyone has any suggestions about feasibility, as recommended route given my interest. We'd like to stay below 2000$ for total expenses.
