I'm looking to take a trip in the end of August to see a lot of both city and natural sites with some friends in college with me. We have roughly 10 days. I've been to yellowstone so that's no big deal, and am familiar with LA, etc. Accordingly, we were thinking of leaving Seattle and heading through Idaho to Salt Lake City to Vegas to LA to San Francisco to somewhere on the Oregon Coast (many small campgrounds) and back to Seattle. Any advice on routes? Also, any advice on camp grounds around those cities but within range that might save some money versus a hotel?
Thanks in advance!
