We're driving from Denver to San Jose, CA in July. Looks like we have two main options:
1. North to Cheyenne, then West on I-80 via Salt Lake City, Reno etc.
2. West to Grand Junction, down to Las Vegas, Barstow, Bakersfield, and then up I-5.
The distances are almost identical - any thoughts about the two routes? It seems like the Southern route would be more scenic perhaps, but that's as far as I got in weighing my options.
I'd love to drive this in two days if possible. But, that might be pushing things??
thanks for any input!!
