Hello RTA community!
me and a friend are planning on doing a 3 week trip alongside the westcoast of America.
Our route would consist of the following stops (in that order):
- Rialto Beach
- Mount Hood (area)
- Crater Lake
- Samuel H Boardman State Park
- Bryce Canyon
- Observation Point Trail
- Zion National Park
- Grand Canyon
- Las Vegas
That'd be most/some stops (still figuring out the to-do's at the end) but that should be about it.
I'm wondering though - we originally planned to fly in via Portland and start there but someone really recommended Rialto beach.
I suppose Seattle would be the best place to fly in then?
Rialto Beach + all the stops up until Las Vegas (so Seattle - Rialto & Vegas - L.A. aren't included) has us at 2500 miles.
Would this + the 2 routes not yet included be do-able in 3 weeks (say 20-22 days)?
Also - any other parks, towns or cities, activities you would definitely recommend doing?
We're mainly going for nature and some hiking when possible and visiting Vegas and L.A. for more city-scape and the grandeur.
We could also start in L.A. and go upward but the route would be the same really.
Any help and other advice would be welcome!
Thanks in advance!
