im going on my first trip in august. I have allowed for 1 month of travelling and exploring. I am starting in vancouver with a destination of santa fe. I am planning on taking the scenic route down the coast of california. My stops along the trip are seattle, astoria, salem, coos bay, crater lake national park, redwood park, into san francisco, LA, and san diego. Ive heard mixed stories about baja california, so i dont know if i should go or not. after california, i plan on going to vegas, grand canyon, petrified forest park, flagstaff, tucson, and into new mexico. There, i want to see white sands, carlsbad caverns, roswell, albuquerque, and finnish in santa fe. I know that there is so much more to see on this route. Please help me with suggestions of places to see and things to do. Thank you..
