Hi Everyone. Thanks to all for this forum's great insights and traveling info. I have fond 40-year-old memories of going WEST as a boy with my family in the ol' Plymouth station wagon. Now back to reality! (-:` My wife, 3 sons (14, 13 & 11) and myself are planning a "WEST" summer road trip leaving from west Tennessee. In no particular order, our basic wish list might include... Meteor Park AZ, Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, Four Corners, Death Valley, Hoover Dam, Sequoia, Yosemite, Readwoof, some Pacific Coast driving, Badlands on the way back? etc. Still researching so we are open to "can't miss" sights on our cross-county "tour". We have 16 days (even a few more if needed) to make our road trip. Looking for any and all advice/info/planners/can't miss sites for our road trip west and back. Thanks again!
