My boyfriend and I have just started planning a one month long (because thats all I have off from pharmacy school) road trip from Florida to California and back from mid-December to mid-January. We are planning on camping along the way (with our dog) at state/national parks in our teardrop (a very small retro camper that we made) and visiting everything we can including Yosemite, Big Sur Coast Highway, Death Valley, the Grand Canyon, the giant redwoods, ect. We are also planning to stay with friends in Park City, UT for a bit and hopefully enjoy some good snowboarding.
My questions are:
Are there any "must see" places along the way you can suggest?
Is going in winter going to cause us too many problems such as road closures? (I guess pushing the trip back to Summer 2010 is an option, but we are itching to go and then we run into the problem of it being too hot for camping)
Any sugestions/tips/heads-up on possible problems are very much appreciated!!!
