Great site everyone - very useful tips.
We're wanting to travel from L.A. the first week of Feb 2010 and looking for a road trip for about 8 days or so. Ultimately we want to end up in vancouver as we are headed there for the winter olympics.
Currently we have two options we are considering:
Trip 1: L.A. all the way to Vancouver via coast.
Trip 2: L.A. to Denver, then fly to Vancouver.
via Las Vegas, Antelope Canyon (Page), Bryce Canyon, Zion Park, Monument Valley, etc ...
Obviously with winter we would not want to do too much snow driving for delays, etc. We also don't want to spend the entire time in the car of course, but are looking to do something a little different as we have travelled the area several times before.
