My wife and I are planning our 3rd cross country trip this coming September. Three States we have not visited yet must fit into our travel plans. They are Missouri, Kansas and California. Although we have approximately 26 days to explore parts our great country, we are not sure where or what to see as of yet. We do want to see the great salt flats, a ghost town or two and perhaps even some natural hot springs. We want to visit the arch in St Louis and then maybe even a baseball or football game in Kansas City or Denver if time allows us. I know that planning your trip can be fun so I must ask one important question. Is there a road someplace in California that one can drive through a giant redwood? That is one thing we must experience if at all possible. If that is possible then by all means we will plan the trip around that. Although most of our time would be spent west of the Rockies, we are open to any suggestions as to any of the “must see’s” in Kansas and Missouri.
