I have just discovered this website and would love a little help from fellow travelers for a road trip I'm planning with my boyfriend. We definitely want to see the sights in Colorado and Utah and have figured out most of the sights we'd like to visit there. However, I'm from northern Virginia and the states passing through to our desired destinations don't look thrilling.
What states would be best to pass through and what sights would you all suggest seeing along the way?
We're both really interested in hiking -- maybe not too difficult as it will be the dead of summer by that time. I think we're more interested in outdoorsy activities, but welcome other ideas as well.
