I'm new here and although I've driven through the country a couple times, I never stopped to see whats out there. I'll be driving from Chicago to Los Angeles on June 2nd and only have 5 full days for the drive. I want to see some nature on the way. I'll have 2 other people in the car helping with the drive.
I'm thinking of doing something like this Chicago--> Colorado --> Utah and then stopping to see Yosemite National Park in California -->San Francisco --> taking the Pacific Coast Highway to Los Angeles
I don't know what to stop and see in Colorado and Utah. I'd keep the stops at Yosemite and San Francisco from half a day to maybe a day. Can anyone give me some advice on what to keep and what to toss out of this trip? I only have 5 full days to get to Los Angeles and mainly want to see nature. Thanks in advance.
