My husband and I are planning our first road trip on the western side of the US in April 2014 and have our general itinerary/ dates in place. we're basically doing a big circular route from San Fran, across NV, UT, CO, NM, AZ and back to San Fran again.
My question is about getting to Zion from Yosemite in April; everything points to all the mountain passes being closed so what routes do you think would be best, balancing out distance/ scenery etc. Also, where would you stop off overnight in between the two parks? We prefer to use state/ county roads rather than interstates.
Thanks for any help you can give- call me sad but I absolutely love planning road trips; almost as fun as the journey itself!
