For some reason my mind has been swamped with thoughts of driving out west to see the sighte those great states have to offer. I would love to see the Grand Canyon but feel this would be too ambitious a solo trip for a first time wanderer given the time I have available. That said, I would love to see some of the majesty of the central and/or west if possible.
Now, just to make things amusing, I have 14 days I can use for travel starting May 17th. Yup, later this week. Sooo, any suggestions for a newb who yearns to see some natural wonders?
My funds are somewhat flexible (though I am generally careful with my money) and my car just had a nice tune-up and inspection last month so I'm feeling pretty good about the mechanicals. I'll be driving my Honda Civic Hatchback (5 speed manual). I'm open to camping and have a very decent tent, sleeping bag, etc. I use when I go back east to Maine each summer. I don't use it often enough to make setting up and striking camp as fast and flawless as I'd like, so if there is someplace with enough sights that I could leave camp up for a couple days that would be ideal. :)
I look forward to hearing what you seasoned travelers have to say.
