My friend and I are from the east coast and planning a trip starting from Seattle. We are going to fly in there to stay with a friend. Our plan is to get to Portland, travel down and make stops through the CA coast, through Phoenix and Utah to end somewhere around Denver. We don't have a strict plan, there are many places we'd like to see and friends to stay with. Our schedules only allow us to travel around February.
Will weather during February in the west, affect our trip?
Will it be more costly to rent and drive the whole time than to take public transportation?
Any tips/suggestions for first-timers?
Anything is appreciated!!
