My wife and I hae 18 days fron LA to LA in September, and after spending the first 2 night in LA, we have Bright Angel Lodge booked at the Grand Canyon with only 1 night in between for stopping on the road.
I was hoping to go through Joshua Tree National Park, and maybe some of old route 66, but I want to be able to take some of it in. Is this a reasonable drive over 2 days? I'm also toying with going to the OC beaches before we leave LA, so this might eat some time out of the first day too.
Any suggestions or advice?
