I am planning a road trip for next summer. I'll be traveling with three friends. We are (or should I say will be) aged between 19 and 27. We'll be arriving in San Francisco on July 21st and we'll be departing (also from San Francisco) on August 20th. This means we have 31 days to play with.
We have not interest in spending our time in cities. Actually, the only city we want to see is San Francisco. We'll be in the States for the nature (national parks, state parks, monuments, forests, etc.). I'm hoping you, the experts can give me some advice on different itineraries, stops along the way and stuff like that.
Here is the list of places we would like to visit:
- Death Valley
- Vermillion Cliff
- Glen Canyon
- Grand Canyon
- Monument Valley
- Natural Bridges
- Grand Teton
- Crater Lake
I am at the beginning of the planning process so all of our 31 days are free to use :)
Thank you in advance.
p.s. Sequoia NP was also on the list but I decided that it will be better if we drive the Tioga pass and go straight to Death Valley and save the miles for Crater Lake, since there are sequoias in Yosemite and Redwoods. Good choice, bad choice?
p.s.2 As far as sleeping goes. Camping and nothing else if it's possible.
