Hey guys, I finally confirmed that I will be getting 3 weeks off work this summer and would like to plan another road trip. Last year I drove myself and 4 more friends visiting from Europe in my (at that time new to me) Tacoma to Alaska. We covered 8000km in two weeks, visited places as Fairbanks, Denali park, Anchorage, Homer, Seward, Kluane Lake, Whitehorse, Muncho Lake etc. and it was just awesome. This time I'm thinking of going south to explore western US. I'll be starting in Edmonton, AB on the 16th of July after work and have until August 7-8 to get back home.
I would like to get to down to Utah as soon as I can and will leave Montana, Wyoming and Yellowstone to another smaller trip in the future. I'd be starting my trip driving towards Calgary on friday night to get rid of first 300km. From there its wide open and I would love your suggestions. I will be camping wherever I can as usual. I was thinking of taking mountain bikes with me but that might still change. I would definitely want to see Grand Canyon, thought of passing through Vegas, then explore Sequoia and Yosemite parks and maybe try hiking up Mt. Whitney, from there possibly head towards San Francisco, definitely would like to try surfing while im down in Cali, would like to spent some time on the coast and head back home through Oregon, Washington and BC.
I would like to hear some ideas and help planning this monster trip. Where to go, what not to miss etc. Thanks.
