I have been offered use of a condo at Lake Tahoe, I have decided to spend my DH & mine 1st anniversary by taking an adventurous road trip across the country. In the past, we have taken lavish trips to the caribbean and hawaii- fine dining, 4-5 star hotels, room service, etc.
THIS TIME, I want to "rough it" a bit.. be adventurous... explore... wear tanks and jeans and hiking boots or flip flops. Get the picture?
I have never been out west (with the exception of a trip to Vegas) and need suggestions.
We will be leaving from Lexington, KY- I'd like to take the first day and drive as far as possible, stopping spontaneously to take photos of anything interesting (photography is a hobby of mine)... where would be a good stopping point to stay a night before trekking on the next day?
I would like to hike, see interesting things- a ghost town?
Hike in AZ, swing by the Grand Canyon, head to Lake Tahoe... mid week drive over to San Fran, spend the day and drive back.
As you can see, I desperately need tips- good stops
We will be 25, it will be either June or August, I am a health freak, we like to hike- I am a hairstylist, so I am into fashion and glamour.. BUT I also have a "hippie" side and can be a nature chick too.. I run, hike, strength train, so am very active and like a challenge. NO skiing, no swimming (not alot), 1.5-2 weeks. HELP!!
