I am moving from Dallas to Berkeley in mid-August. I will be traveling relatively light - 16 year old daughter and 40 lb dog in my Honda Civic (compared to all the trips in the mini-van with 4 kids and 1 or 2 dogs). I had driven all over the Southeast and a good portion of the mid-west, but have never driven farther west than the Davis Mountains in west Texas. So, I am looking for suggestions as to routes (driving across NM & AZ in August sounds really hot) as well as some ideas of what I should take the time to see. I would like to get there in 3-4 days, but can take as long as a week.
Thanks in advance for the ideas!
