I'm a newbie in the planning stages of a summer roadtrip! I'm thinking of bouncing between National Parks and seeing friends along the way this summer, and would love some advice as to "must-sees" on this route...scenic drives, small towns, etc.
Here's where I'd like to go, places where I have friends have a *:
L.A. (start point)
Camano Island, WA*
WA National Parks
Bozeman, MT* (have already been to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons and don't need to go back)
Colorado--have always heard it is amazing...Durango? Boulder? San Juan Skyway?
Utah National Parks
Santa Fe, NM*
Is this insanely ambitious??? How long might this take me not driving 5-6 hours a day (with some longer days in there) and stopping at the * places for around 3 days?
Someone talk some sense into me!!!!
