I have been reading this forum for a while now and thought it was about time I posted my planned road trip on it! Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated but what I mainly want to know is if this trip is too ambitious. I want to be able to spend some time in each of the locations and enjoy the scenery. So...here it goes. Oh, we are planning to do this between 23rd and 29th July this year:
23rd - Leave San Francisco and head to Yosemite. Camp in Yosemite
24th - Yosemite to Death Valley - camp Death Valley (is this an option in the summer - would it be crazy to do it???)
25th - Death Valley to Zion - camp at Zion
26th - Explore Zion and Bryce Canyon - camp at Bryce
27th - Bryce Canyon to Monument Valley - camp Monument Valley (surrounding area)
28th - Monument Valley to Grand Canyon - camp Grand Canyon
29th - Grand Canyon to Vegas - drop off car.
I really want to see Monument Valley but I am worried that I won't fully have the time to appreciate it and it may be better done in another road trip next year.
