National Park Road trip for Aussies

Jump to last reply

Hi fellow travellers. I have received so much useful information from fellow fodorites (many of whom are American!) in previous travels to Europe and Canada but now have some planning to do for the US and hope someone can offer some guidance on a very preliminary question.

Many years ago my sister and I road tripped from Los Angeles and covered GC, Bryce, Zion, Las Vegas, Yosemite, San Francisco and then back down the coast to LA to depart home.
(I think in about 12 days.)

My husband hasn't been to most of these places with the exception of SF.

After some reading I have decided that I would like to add Yellowstone, Grand Teton (and maybe Glacier) to this itinerary and possibly Washington state where we have a friend we would like to visit if possible.

So, here are my very preliminary questions:

If we had a month, would this be feasible? If not, suggestions on trimming down?

When would be the optimum time to go, given that obviously it is probably different for each region?

Depending on the answer to question two I guess, could we wing it (or some places?) accommodation wise? (My sister and I booked nothing in advance but that was November 1998!)

We are both 50 plus, love photography, easy hiking and don't mind a long drive now and then (we are Australian after all.) We usually stay in self catering in Europe but realise this may not suit this trip.

Finally, I AM wading through trip reports and doing my research but so far have found lots of' 'two week' type trips typically covering some of what we want to do but not many putting the two areas together.

Many thanks for any advice!
