My family and I are moving from Tampa, FL, to Salem, OR. A couple weeks ago we completed a 3-week road trip with our 3 boys in our Class A RV - due to the time of year we had to take a southernly route to avoid snow and ice as much as possible (though we were faced with a manageable amount of snow at times). Our path took us through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and all the way up California on I-5.
I have to make a second trip to get my F-250 and two dogs there sometime in early to mid-June.
I have very little knowledge west of the Mississippi. I am hoping to do a completely different route to see new areas (and avoid Texas). I would prefer to take a more northerly route and am hoping that it is safe enough in mid-June. I would like to take as many "scenic" routes as possible without going hours out of the way. Elevation is totally fine with me as long as it doesn't require chains - which I assume to ok in June.
I would appreciate any recommended routes or points of interest - keep in mind I will have two dogs so that may prevent me some being able to do some non-pet friendly things. Thank you!!!
