We've been considering a desert road trip, with a 3-4 day stop in LV, then back north to Seattle. The mapping tools all seem to want an I-84/I-15 route (rather than I-5 to SoCal and then NE on I-15--I think).
We did a big summer trip, and it was great, but for the desert, I think it would be too hot to do in summer. But snowy passes concern me.
Is this an insane idea? Or would it be safe enough? How's the scenery in the winter vs. the spring? We'd take about 10 days or so, maybe two weeks to do the whole trip.
Me, DH and two kids ages 5 and 9.
