    Hi Everyone,

    So i'm planning a road trip from LA to atleast Carlsbad Caverns (thats probably the furthest I will go as I only have a week of time off.) My gf and I want to basically see everything on the way there..and loop back and see as much on the way back as well.


    Any suggestions? Cool touristy stuff..so far we have things like..


    grand canyon
    carlsbad caverns
    meteor crater
    petrified forest


    Thanks in Advance!
