I have been trying to map out the best route for this trip and feeling overwhelmed. It just seems like a lot of driving and not enought "fun" time. Vacation time is 2 weeks in September 2015 (16 days)
We are starting in Cambria, CA, heading north to Lassen Volcanic National Park, up and over to Riggins Idaho and then over to Yellowstone. On our way back, we will leave Yellowstone, head south to Salt Lake City then to Reno, and then back home to Cambria.
Its 44 hours of driving and 2700 miles round trip. Our main stop is Yellowstone. We will need to stop several times on the way there so the above route is what we decided on. We would like to stay 3 nights minimum in Yellowstone area camping and 1 night at the other locations above. I still feel like its a lot of driving every time we get in the truck. 500 -600 each day.
Is this reasonable in 2 weeks? We will be towing a travel trailer and have our 3 big dogs. Any other ideas or suggestions would be helpful!
We are also huge campers so if you know of any other place in this area worth visiting please let me know .Thanks Stephanie
