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
-Bryce Canyon NP
-Capital Reef NP
-Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument
-Lake Mead and Hoover Dam
-Death Valley NP
-Various sites in San Francisco
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.
