We are planning on spending just under 2 weeks (9-11 days probably with some flex to make longer) driving out to the Bay Area from Philadelphia. If anyone could share itineraries (ie. which places not to miss, etc) it would be greatly appreciated.

The current plan is to spend the first day or two getting out past Chicago and toward Nebraska but dont have any itinerary after that. We are trying to determine whether to go on a more northernly route (Yellowstone/Grand Tetons/Jackson, Glacier, etc) or a more middle route (through CO/UT to hit Bryce, Zion, Canyonland, Arches, etc).

Any advice on must see itinerary stops would be greatly appreciated!
