Is this route worth doing?
My fiancee and I are planning to tour the USA next spring. I have enclosed our "proposed" route in another thread, but, basically, we hope to spend a few months seeing most of the country. I was just wondering if it would be worth starting in Alaska and driving down the west coast, across the Rockies, down to San Frnacisco/LA? The only part of the USA that our initial route doesn't incorporate is the North West of America/Canadian border. I can foresee that this will be a long addition to our trip, but would it be worth seeing? After all, I would like to see the beauty of the Rocky mountains.
What do you all think? Yes or no?
If the trip is within your budget and if you have the time, the scenery is worthy of adding to your trip.
However, one question...there is no need to cross the Rockies to get from the north-west coast of Canada and the US to San Francisco. Are you veering inland to Idaho, Colorado, or other Rocky Mountain areas before going to San Francisco?
I would go down the coast to San Francisco, then LA, then drive east into Colorado with its awesome Rocky Mountain views.
