Default Re: Summer Trip

Like the other posts say..

I'd definitely streamline it a bit

Stay in the rockies the whole time.. it would be hard to pick the best spots to recommend.. they're all magnificent.. but if I had to.. GTNP -> YNP -> GNP - but only because it's the least driving.. and you could easily fill a month from 1st to last with a few side trips

And remember - how big some of the western states are, and add in the drive times.. and depending on time of year, how crowded the National Parks are (Yellowstone gets about 900K just in July) Yellowstone National Park Visitor Statistics ~ Yellowstone Up Close and Personal



save the 2,000 mile round-trip to Yosemite for another time

Do (pick one to 5)
  • Yosemite
  • Eastern Sierras (H 395)
  • Sequoia NP
  • Tahoe area
  • Shasta area
on a different trip.. just fly into Sacramento and rent a car for that one
