Hello guys and girls,
I'm from The Netherlands (Europe) and exploring a possible roadtrip through western USA. It's being offered by a dutch travel agency and I am very interested in your opinion about it.
1 Flight to San Francisco (15 hours)
2 San Francisco
3-4 Yosemite NP
6 Las Vegas
7 Zion NP
8 Bryce Canyon
9-10 Grand Canyon
11 Petrified Forest
12 Canyon de Chelly
13 Monument Valley
14 Mesa Verde
17 Rock Springs
18 Grand Teton
19-20 Yellowstone NP
21 Salt Lake City
22-23 Flight Home to Amsterdam
What do you guys think of this trip? All worth it I hope.
Now this trip is offered both west to east, as east to west (starting in Salt Lake City). I would think west to east would be the nicest, since you end the trip then on a high in Yellowstone NP. Agree?
I'm also wondering what the best time of year would be to enjoy this. The way we travel will be by mini-van and sleeping in small tents (mostly, not in Las Vegas off-course ;)). So sleeping in a tent at cold night could be tough.
I have the option of:
April 25 (start in SF)
May 17 (reverse trip: start in SLC)
June 6 (start in SF)
June 7 (reverse trip: start in SLC)
June 27 (start in SF)
June 28 (reverse trip: start in SLC)
Being one goes from death valley to Grand Teton climate differense are huge. What would be in your opinion the best option to go though?
Anyway I'm really looking forward to this trip, experiencing the beautiful country and it's nature I only know from TV.
