My friend and I are doing a 5 day roadtrip in the first week of October on a pair of Harleys, we can't wait! Now that it's getting close, I'm thinking about what clothes to wear for the trip and researching typical weather at this time of year along our tentatively planned route - we'd appreciate any advice you may have on what temperatures we should expect, as the route does have a lot of high and low elevation points along it. Also, if you have any suggestions on places to stop and visit along the way, that would be great!
Firstly, this is the route we are thinking of following:
Day 1 - Las Vegas to Lone Pine - via Death Valley.
Day 2 - Lone Pine to Carson City - planning a stop at Manzanar Internment Camp that morning - continue along Highway 395 and maybe stop at a few other locations on the way to Carson City.
Day 3 - Carson City to Austin Nevada - taking the Lonliest Highway 50. Possibly might go a little further to Eureka or even as far as Ely this day, depending on how often we stop and how much progress we make.
Day 4 - Austin, NV to Great Basin National Park - explore a bit of the park and stay in Baker, NV that night.
Day 5 - Baker NV to Las Vegas via US 93.
Thanks for any advice!
