Needing Expertise: Summer 2014 Road Trip Vancouver to Moab

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I am looking for some assistance, advice and expertise.

I am planning a surprise road trip (ROUND TRIP) for my partner who is an avid mountain biker and 4x4-er. We live in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia and want to take 2 weeks to drive to Moab so he can spend his birthday doing a bucket list item: off roading and biking there. Neither of us has ever been to this part of the States and we want to explore and see the amazing sights along the way.

We are most interested in scenic attractions, like national parks, caves, waterfalls, geysers, etc. Would anyone be able to help me with a route and plan for this trip so I can get started? We will be traveling in an FJ Cruiser with my senior mother and dog. All are good travellers! I want to make it the summer road trip of a lifetime for everyone!

I'm looking for a website/app/person (!) to help me plan every detail like what routes to take, where to stay and what the best sights to see would be. And of course, planning different routes for departure and return.

A few notes: we have spent time in Seattle and Portland so we could skip that. Same with Vegas. We are not after shopping/entertainment but more seeing amazing natural sights and staying in some wonderful places.
Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you!
