  1. Default Traveling from VA to OR in Oct.

    Hello all,

    I'm new to this site and need advice about a trip that I'm planning.

    I'll be traveling from VA to CA to OR over approximately 2 weeks in Oct. I plan on going via I-40 until I reach AR. Then see the following:

    -Painted desert and petrified forest NP
    -Grand Canyon NP
    -Glen Canyon NP
    -Zion NP
    -Bryce Canyon NP
    -Capital Reef NP
    -Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument
    -Lake Mead and Hoover Dam
    -Death Valley NP
    -Yellowstone NP
    -Various sites in San Francisco
    -Redwood NP

    I may also see a sight or two one the way back. I realize that I likely won't get to all of these places.

    What should I have at the top of my list as must see places and what should I add to the list in case there may be time.

    Also any advice or tips that anyone could offer me would be appreciated.

    Default confused

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Lets start with a few basics, because I'm a little confused.

    Do you have 2 weeks for your trip out to Oregon, and then are planning to go back at a later date? Or are you planning to do all of this as a round trip in two weeks?

    Also, is there a specific reason you are taking I-40 to Arkansas, or is that just a route that you though would work best?

    Two weeks should let you see a fair number of things on your trip, but if its a round trip for this journey, then we're talking about a whole new ballgame.

    Hey Michael,

    I will have two weeks to travel to Oregon and than after being in Oregon for a week I will have 1 week to travel back to VA and figured I could stop at 1 or 2 places on my way back home if I were in the mood.

    I'm taking I-40 to AR because that is the quickest way from where I'm located. If you know a better way let me know. Also in OK I was thinking about traveling some of historic Rt 66.

    Hope this clears up the confusion. If there is anymore let me know.
